Actually, UTICA is a massive eyesore, and a plague on the sensibilities of rational people. It is awful and disgusting, and a laughingstock - but now it has a SIGN!
I truly can't believe it took 5.5 years to plan and build that thing.

I finally rode by this stupid thing....They ought to put a big billboard with a picture of Jeff Foxworthy right below it...... In all seriousness what the hell was the purpose of this thing ? Maybe to let everyone know to start holding their breath as they drive through so they don't get a wiff of the well known stench Utica emits ? Or maybe it was to let the governor actually know where the hell the place is ? They should have just put a sign up saying you're halfway between Albany and Rochester and the Adirondacks are to the North....

This certainly serves as "The Utica Warning Sign". Letting everyone know who passes us by, that they should just pass us by. It is in poor taste, and without a purpose or reason. It is nothing more than ego gratification for the Utican who put it there. I can only wait until this sign craze catches on with the rest of Utica. I'm sure the next super sign will be the "Cornhill" sign.

A sign is absolutely the least of Utica troubles. It would take a whole Topix thread just to list the problems.

What they should do is add all the supporters that are keeping utica going like,

Utica college, suny it, mvcc, "moes" and yes i hate to say it but the boiler maker. Now here are the things killing utica. Contractors that are local, we should send them out to pull capital in. You know a good contractor when they have more jobs out of the city or the state than local. Why because they are rid bidding. Hold up yes it makes alot of sense. Continues.... lol okay! Turning stone is sucking the poor and middle class dry. Rich people dont need to gamble thats why they stay rich poor and middle class try to become rich and lose more than they gain. Grants and niagara mohawk is like arrons way. These are programs controlled by scum bag greedy individuals politician of utica and ny state. Washing there hands while making them look like they give a fk isnt that rightttttttt..... so how do we get back and teach them to stop messing with us.. just let it be. As seen on tv they are all headed for self distruction.

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.
