Can anyone here please explain why there is this gigantic ugly scaffolding tower with a lighted sign that says Utica? This thing can be seen from the thruway! Is it some sort of warning sign, letting people know they are getting close to the worst city in NYS? Its really ugly and looks like they got a deal on a used, abandoned antenna or cell tower. I'm expecting this to start flashing on and off sometime soon, to draw more attention to the dump of NY.

This is a sign done by a company that burnd down then reopened with another name. One of Utica best flip flop company. I gave these coke heads permission to hang this sign but they must of not heard the permission, must I blow a elephant horn or something again " YOU MAY HANG THE SIGN" but please no burning down businesses again. Talk about who you know!
Actually that company's revenues bury what PAR and the rest of the dumb pretend "tech" companies there do.

They also don't deal with ribboncutting grant pushing pols. They are a success on their own. I know that makes them the odd man out, few companies earn their real way there, preferring the endless corporate welfare crony plan like Saranac Catpiss, Northern Safety & Drug Dealing Longos, and PAR.

Hey Edward, we don't have to explain anything to you, if you don't like it, too bad.

This sign is so typical Utica stupid. Its barely visible. Its just a little thing way up high. Do you people really need a light up LED sign to warn the masses that they are passing through Utica? This is absolutely tacky and just plain dumb. And to make it even dumber, the sign lights up in red. Red, the color that signifies danger. Like a red alert, you are aproaching Utica, danger! danger! I've always thought Utica never contained much intelligence. This sign proves it.

The tower-sign is actually intended to be visible to those passing by on the thruway. It's a reminder that Utica is here and that it's a place worth visiting.(Whether or not that is true is another question, but Utica will never have any chance of improving if people continue to just pass by it and forget it.)

It lights up, changes colors, and is supposed to grab attention. That's why it's designed like a tower. It's just a glorified billboard aimed to help Utica attract some attention.

They need a sign because nobody knows or cares much about where Utica is. Does Syracuse, Rochester, Buffalo or Albany have a light up sign? The answer is "no" since these cities are noticable without a light up scaffold.

Agree, and the sign is the laughingstock of Syracuse, Rochester, Buffalo and Albany. What's next?

lol obviously, because they all care so much when other cities build something. We're so pathetic to add something new to our area. I think we should just outlaw building in Utica altogether. Maybe then all the other cities will stop making fun of us, thus solving all of the area's problems. Genius!

I think the key first is filling the abandoned buildings first before building.
