I actually lived in West Utica (across from Utica College) but I went to John F. Hughes (1965-1973). So my walk home took me past many of the places mentioned by others - Uptown Theater, Grand Union, Sunset Lanes, Gilmore Village, Murnane Field, National Auto (I got my first 10-speed from there).

My aunt and uncle lived on Woodlawn Ave. I remember Dick's Suprette and the place across Genessee Street with the old railroad caboose.

It was a great time and place to grow up in.

Anyone remember A&J Hobby House on Auburn Ave? I used to by model rockets there.

Yes, I grew up in South Utica, I remember Rohmyers Grocery store and Pashyan's on Roosevelt Dr. Andys Superette and Shultzes(sp) Stores on Melrose Ave above Sunset Ave. And, there was another little store on Sunset and Seward ave, I think it was called McGuinnis'.(sp) Sunset, Our Lady of Lourdes, and JF Hughes Schools. I can remember the Sunset Bowling Alley, Pin O Rama, and not in Utica but the Arura Bowling Alley and Roller Skating Rink. Ahhh the memories!!! Wankel Playground Little League Baseball there and Murnane Field for UFA Football. White Tower was a big hangout, how about King Cole Ice Cream (Those Super Thick Shakes) and Jeans Beans and Uptown Grill for Fish Fry. The good ole days.
Hi, I grew up on Hopson ST., yes I remember that little store on Sunset and Seward Sts. My mom used to send me there for food. Every Saturday I would hit the Uptown theatre , which is still there.
I could see a double feature for a quarter. I went to Sunset school and Our Lady of Lourdes. Also, there used to be a little store down on Seward and French Rd I believe. Lots of old time candy, Mary Janes, Turkish taffy. And who could forget the Busy Bee as you head towards New Hartford.
