Looks like we finally agree on something. However,what is the answer? Not promote the city? Only talk about the negative? Keep the fuel burning on old political fights and grudges between people. Should I just give up? Because some think it's a loss cause? Sorry,that's not my nature. I can say for a fact that investors read topic sometime and by you trashing the city certainly will not help. In fact in my opinion it can hurt as much as the stuff that you hate about the past. So,you are just as much a criminal as the ones you speak of. Because you are stealing away opportunity for others. We need to move forward. I believe that we are. Your comments will defiantly not bring jobs.

Don't give up. Just rather than trying to "celebrate the ordinary" as another poster put it, attack those things that have made this area what it has become. Speak out against public sector union contracts that bleed the taxpayers and cannot be sustained. Speak out against the highest sales tax rate in the United States. Speak out against the shoddy bookkeeping. Speak out against the system that benefits the politically well connected at the expense of the majority of the population. Stop believing the lies about how the Stanley, Hotel Utica, AHL hockey team.....are going to make a difference economically.

Don't give up but don't perpetuate the myths either.

A huge swath of the city is living at the poverty level, the roads are goat paths, and the sewer system is spewing filth on a regular basis.

WHAT REALLY MATTERS IS THAT UTICA HAS PUSTIES!!!111!!!

Sam,Sam,Sam. Oh the lonely path we weave. The only one on Social Services are the lazy Americans that have been getting social services for decades. The new arrivals take pride in their homes and work very hard. What you are saying is a complete lie. Shame on you.

Well, if you look at one of the original comments of business leaders investing in Utica they were touting the restaruant opening near the aud as being one of the great investments coming to Utica.... I guess tit for tat. One investment in of this type and one out...

And why not take it a step further with bench seats around it that look like pieces of tomato pie, a chicken riggie fountain, and half-moon flowers surrounding the big pustie... Could put it in the center of the traffic circle. Utica would be sure to make National News once again!!

In many ways, Syracuse is just a bigger Utica, only alot nicer. The really big problem here are people such as Utica Pride who choose to ignore the problems. and just paint a rosey picture over them. Build a pretty facade, and nobody will notice the trash heap behind it. You gloat about all the "wonderful" things about Utica, and continue to celebrate the unremarkable and ordinary. Who cares about any of that? Let me know when something actually happens there. Should you do that, and if it were ever to happen, I will have moved out of Utica. Last one to leave, shut off the Utica sign.

Wow are YOU a gullible sheep! Trust me cuzzy, no one wants to be a utican. That's only reserved for especially stupid people.

More proof that the rich create jobs. They left utitroit and took their jobs with them.

Just like Detroit right down to the "hockey" arena while you can't pay your bills! You people are ridiculous!

Its been plugged in for at least a week now. You can see it from North Utica, the arterial, and from Walmart. Its not very big, looks like a bunch of red lights just above the treetops. In Utica, everything gets done on a small scale.
