When you think of Utica, do you think of it as being a large city?

The fact is, the answer to the above should be yes. In fact, Utica used to be even bigger. At one time the city had a population making it one of the largest cities not only in New York but in the entire country. There obviously has been a fall from grace when it comes to population, but not in spirit.

At one point in time, Utica had a population of 100,000 people. That was nearly 100 years ago, however. At the time, Utica was a bustling factory town with many immigrants making their way into Central New York. Over the years, the city has seen a steady decline from one reason, to another. At the moment, over the last few decades, Utica has seen it's population flatline for the most part.
