worst, there are a lot of areas in Utica which are not blighted. What roads did you travel? Were you looking for the worst? We Uticans are glad you don't live here too.

It's really not hard to see why they need to pump refugees in from other countries to live there.

I agree with your assessment. Utica looks like a 3rd world country. I think most people don't even realize just how blighted the city is because they live with it every day.
I work part time in a job that involves driving around the City of Utica.

I agree with the assessment that the original poster posted about the condition of the inner City's housing or LACK of housing.

It is a shame as 99% of the good paying jobs/businesses left a long time ago and the only jobs that are hiring are the minimum wage ones. Combine this with the flood of sex offenders and immigrants depending upon Welfare, Food stamps, medicaid, etc. for their existance, and you have all the signs of a depressed area.

The next time you have an occasion to drive from the Thruway exit up Genesee Street, take a look at the people's faces that you see. They all have such a hopeless look on their faces as if to say they have given up on life.

For all of us that still live in Utica in our homes that we bought many hears ago, all I can say is "This is the result of all the greedy politicians that bled our city finances over the past 50 years and now nothing is left".

Slowly you redeem yourself and I disagree with most of what you say but that was Certified Topix Gold. Funniest and truest Utica Topix comment I've read this year bar none and there's a lot of funny true comments on Topix I think that's why they read.

Warning: Only the moron hater Cretin or his fat rashy witless lover Cliffy would think that was the funniest comment in 2013. Here's something more funny.....the moronic lovers are both from Utica!

And here's something funnier. We were smart enough to leave. You aren't. You're stuck there in that cess pool. Enjoy your life and make sure you kiss your fat wife good night and your soon to be trashy kids. But before you kiss your wife make sure you wipe her mouth first. Trust me.

But now? It's a pathetic and sad reminder of what has happened to Central NY.
The worst part is the OOOOOOooooooticans who still talk with that fake gangster Italian speak even though it is the year 2013 and none of their families has ever been near Italy.

I drove through Court St to the Arterial with my children and my 7 year old asked why is was so dirty with graffiti everywhere. Having to explain that it's a shit hole to your kids is pretty f'n sad.

I'm betting the kids are ALREADY trashy by the way the parents supporting that bs pork state act think and talk.

Kids like TAZZYgurl drawing police cars in a room full of football trophies or xbox games and porn. Becoming skilled at thinking he can shout people down with "common nonsense" like daddy or mommy ootica. Sam type parents = same type kids.

Gutterball ilk who live off the state system and glorify it for their dinner instead of work to produce the things and money that make the world go round.

And yet people here allow their represenatives to take their tax dollars and spend them on luring an AHL team. Nice work Utica and the Mohawk Valley. Congratulations. You will continue to get what you deserve with a mindset that allows such things.

How many have had the experience of having friends/relatives who used to live here visit? How many said nice things about how this region is now? How many expressed how glad they are that they got out.

Our friend from Clifton Park posts about how bad this area is but he lives in New York too. In New York it's just varying degrees of bad. Being form Clifton Park is akin to being the smartest kid in special ed.

you can drive to any city in this country and find exactly what you found in utica. all inner cities have run down sections, with crime, run down buildings and lots of welfare recipients. thats why those people live there... its all they can afford. its the way this country operates,most of those people are too lazy to get a job and make something better for themselves.
