serious is this a joke? It has changeable lights interferes with communication towers from Griffis Air Force Base and Verizon Towers, it interferes with driving on the thruway. At least put box signs with ads in them. Such as lexan faces great for durability and 10"-12" light box anything else is just weight on that tooth pick which you call a sign/tower, lol. Who designed this crap? Must of took the buyer for mint, the only reason I say this is because of the design. No Heart. Buyer ment well but there is no spark sorry dude. Consider renting space fpr 8 month to 12 month reach. At a cost of $12,000 a year MAX. A don't push things that the city already knows we suck up too, like the boiler maker, goshhhh!!! Enough is Enough , Im the first one that would put the shit hole down and tell what its worth. But I'm tired of driving around here and seeing bull shit. ATTACK THE SOURCE,,, Coming Soon!

OMG! As I am driving down the Thruway I think that I am seeing a real UFO! Was I hallucinating? Did I take too much medications? NO! There is this little tower with lights all over it, and they are changing colors. The lights are changing colors!! What is going on? It's not Christmas! Is this sign from the same people who don't know when their house has too many Christmas lights? Too much is never enough? This has got to be the worst thing to happen to Utica since the roundabout. First they build a roundabout in the middle of the ghetto, then they build a light up, color changing sign in the middle of a swamp. I can't wait to see what they do next!

Who the f ¥€ k cares what they do next. It only benefits a small group of butt fkers. They could light up the entire area. Doesnt mean their will be tenants in these location more than 1-2 years MAX. Dont give us that bull shit about a casino or hooters or some shrimp bar on a roof in down town utica either. I rather skin pop with the designer. And smoke crack with the mayor.

The original plan was to build the sign in the round about but after much planning (7 years) they came to the conclusion that the tourist attention of having these two iconic features together would be too much for that area to handle so that is why the sign is in a swamp. Kudos to utica! Lol

I observe the Topix trolls criticize the sign and the nameless "they" who built it as if it was a governmental effort or the work of some civic organization.

Take some time to read the links posted above here. The sign was the vision of an individual business person. He came up with the idea and made it happen on his own.

What have you trolls done that has garnered as much attention lately?(hint: something you can't do with a keyboard)

You have no one to blame for your ignorance than yourself and your refusal to learn what you are talking about.

It's Griffiss, people. G-R-I-F-F-I-S-S. Two I's. Two F's. Two S's. TWO S's.
For a community that claims to be so damned proud of their heritage and history, you are very lacking when it comes to the very simple acknowledgement of Lt. Col. Townsend Griffiss - the namesake of the base that was the centerpiece of this area for over 5 decades. He died for our country. Please spell his name correctly.

So when will this thing start flashing? It won't be complete until it flashes on and off, and in sequence. It has to be the ultimate in tackyness.

To suggest that the man who envisioned the sign and made it a reality wasted 7 years of his life provides plenty of evidence about your ignorance.
