Utica (pronounced i//) is a city in the Mohawk Valley and the county seat of Oneida County, New York, United States. The tenth most populous city in New York, its population was 62,235 as of the 2010 U.S. census, an increase of 2.6% from the 2000 census. Located on the Mohawk River at the foot of the Adirondack Mountains, Utica is approximately 90 miles (145 km) northwest of Albany and 45 miles (72 km) east of Syracuse, New York. While Utica and the neighboring city of Rome have their own metropolitan area, the metro area and cities often share services between the Capital District and Syracuse metro areas.
Formerly a river settlement inhabited by the Iroquois confederacy, Utica strengthened its position as a stopover city between Albany and Syracuse by way of the Erie Canal, Chenango Canal, and railways during the 19th and 20th centuries. The city's importance along the canals was later marked by its industrial success in the silverware industry and as the world's largest producer of textiles during the 19th century. Throughout the 20th century, Utica's political corruption and organized crime gave it the moniker "Sin City" and later, "the city that God forgot."
Similar to other Rust Belt cities, Utica's economic downturn has challenged the city to recover from subsequent urban decentralization to nearby suburbs, industrial decline from globalization, and poverty associated with the city's socioeconomic stress and political issues. With a low cost of living, Utica has become a melting pot for refugees from war-torn countries around the world, while also serving as the home to numerous colleges and universities.
According to the 2010 census, the Utica–Rome Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) contains 299,397 people within Oneida and Herkimer counties. Counties in the Mohawk Valley region have a combined population of 622,133 residents.[a]

Utica, a village originally inhabited by the Mohawk people of the Iroquois confederacy, was established on the site of Old Fort Schuyler, built during the French and Indian War. The tract of land on which the fort sat was now part of a 20,000 acre (80.94 km²) portion of marshland granted by King George II of Great Britain to William Cosby, Governor of New York on January 2, 1734. Built in 1758, the fort was located near several trails, including the Seneca Trail. Its position on a bend at a shallow point in the Mohawk River made it important for fording purposes, as the Mohawk tribe would name the bend Unundadages, meaning "around the hill" in the Mohawk language, later present on the city seal.
During the American Revolution, border raids from British-affiliated Iroqouis tribes were used as an excuse to allow the Rangers to enter Central New York and displace the Iroquois. The destruction of the villages and settlements would then allow for the arrival of immigrants from New England.
In 1794, a state road was built west from Utica to the Genesee River and was then named Genesee Road. A contract was awarded the same year to the Mohawk Turnpike and Bridge Company to extend the road northeast to Albany, and in 1798, the road was extended, the same year the village was named and incorporated. The creation of the Seneca Turnpike was the first significant factor in the growth and development of Utica. The village became the resting and relocating area on the Mohawk River for goods and people moving into Western New York and past the Great Lakes.
Several theories surrounding the etymology of Utica exist. While a claim exists that surveyor Robert Harper named the city, the most common theory for its naming involves a 1798 meeting at Bagg's Tavern, a resting place for travelers passing through the village, where the city's name was selected in a drawing from a hat from thirteen entries. With the village's new name chosen, its boundaries were defined in an act passed by the New York State Legislature on April 3, 1798.
Utica expanded its borders in subsequent charters in 1805 and 1817. On April 5, 1805, the eastern and western boundaries of the village were expanded, while on April 7, 1817, the village separated from Whitestown. The city charter was passed by the state legislature on February 13, 1832.
The rise of the city can be seen in its population, with the U.S. Census ranking the city as the 29th largest in the country with 20,000 residents in 1845. The city's location on the Erie and Chenango canals stimulated its industrial development, allowing for the transportation of anthracite coal from northeast Pennsylvania to be used in local manufacturing and distribution. The economy of Utica was centered around manufacturing sectors in furniture, heavy machinery, textiles, and lumber. With the Embargo Act of 1807 and investments from local entrepreneurs, the northeastern United States had a firm grasp on the textile industry, and Utica’s economy began to take off.
With a population of over 650 fugitive slaves during the 1850s, Utica played a major role in the Underground Railroad, as the city was located on an slave escape route from the Southern Tier to Canada by way of Albany, Syracuse, and Rochester. The route was used by Harriet Tubman to travel to Buffalo, as fugitive slaves passing through Utica would utilize the New York Central Railroad right-of-way to complete the journey to Canada. Utica was also the focus city for Methodist preacher Orange Scott's antislavery sermons during the 1830s and 1840s, where he formed an abolitionist group in 1843. Despite the efforts by local abolitionists to support the antislavery movement, anti-abolitionist riots and mobs forced many meetings to other cities. The history of Utica's railroads can be traced to the Utica and Schenectady Railroad Company, incorporated in 1833 using the right-of-way previously occupied by the Mohawk and Hudson River Railroad Co. The early 1900s brought advancements in railways to Utica, with New York Central electrifying 49 miles of rail from the city to Syracuse in 1907 for its West Shore Line interurban service. In 1902, the Utica and Mohawk Valley Railway connected Rome to Little Falls via a 37.5-mile electrified railway through Utica.
Throughout the early 20th century, Utica was known as "Sin City" for the extent of its corruption and control by the political machines of the Democratic Party. The 1950s saw trucker Rufus P. Elefante come to power, though he never ran for office. Formerly a Republican, Elefante's power was influenced by the support of Franklin D. Roosevelt. From the turn of the 20th century to the 1980s, the city had an organized crime presence, largely made up of the Italian mafia.
As a rust belt city, Utica was heavily affected by deindustrialization, which caused a major reduction in manufacturing activity during the latter half of the 20th century. The opening of the New York State Thruway in 1954 which bypassed the city, decline of activity on the Erie Canal, and the decline of railroads in the United States also contributed to the downfall of the local economy. In the 1980s and 1990s, major employers such as General Electric and Lockheed Martin, formed from the merger of the Lockheed Corporation and Martin Marietta in 1995, began to close plants in Utica and Syracuse. With urban jobs relocating to the towns and villages surrounding Utica, suburbanization allowed for the expansion of the nearby town of New Hartford and the village of Whitesboro, causing a severe decline in the urban population, a reflection of the statewide trend of population decreases outside of New York City.
Despite the city's economic decline, Utica has benefitted from its low cost of living, attracting immigrants and refugees from around the world as a result of global conflicts such as the Bosnian War and Iraq War. The city continues to be the focus of local, regional, and statewide economic revitalization efforts. In 2010, Utica developed its first comprehensive master plan in over fifty years.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 16.6 square miles (43 km2), of which, 16.4 square miles (42 km2) is land and 0.3 square miles (0.78 km2) (1.57%) is water. Utica is located at New York's geographic center, adjacent to the western border of Herkimer County, New York, and at the southwest base of the Adirondack Mountains. The city and surrounding suburbs are bound by the Allegheny Plateau to the south and the Adirondack Mountains to the north. The geographic coordinates of the city of Utica are (43.094718, -75.276013), with an elevation of 456 feet (139 m) above sea level.
The city's Mohawk name Unundadages, meaning "around the hill," refers to its elevated position as viewed from the Deerfield Hills to the north. The Erie Canal and Mohawk River pass through northern Utica. Northwest of the city's downtown along its edge is the Utica Marsh, a series of cattail wetlands with a variety of animals, plants and birds, sandwiched between the Erie Canal and Mohawk River, and partly in the Town of Marcy. During the 1850s, plank roads were constructed to handle the marshland surrounding the city. While Utica's surrounding suburbs feature more hills and cliffs than the city, its position where the Mohawk Valley forms a wide plain gives much of the city a slanted, flat topography.
Utica's architecture embraces many qualities that defined Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse, including Greek Revival, Italianate, Gothic Revival and Neoclassical styles. Constructed in 1972, the modernist-style Utica State Office Building stands at 17 floors and 227 feet, the city's tallest building.
With no master plan created for the city, early settlers and property owners heavily contributed to its layout, with many families and individuals contributing to street names. Streets created when the city was a village had more irregularities than streets that came later in the 19th and 20th centuries. As a result of the city's position adjacent to the Mohawk River, it is offset at an angle, where only some streets run north-to-south or east-to-west. Remnants of the Utica's early electric rail systems can be seen in the west and south neighborhoods of the city, as they were constructed within the city streets.
Utica exhibits a continental climate with four distinct seasons, and lies within the humid continental climate, or warm summer climate (Köppen Dfb) zone, generally characterized by cold winters and moderate summers, average summer daytime temperatures of 70–82 °F (21-28 °C), with average winter daytime temperatures lower than -3 °C (27 °F). Since Utica lies in USDA plant hardiness zone 5a, native vegetation can withstand temperatures from -10 °F to -20 F (-28.9 °C to -26.1 °C).
Daytime highs during the summer are generally between 75 °F (24 °C) and 85 °F (29 °C), with some days not reaching 70 °F (21 °C) being common. Summer nights usually bottom out somewhere between 50 °F (10 °C) and 60 °F (16 °C).
Winters in Utica are very cold and snowy, as the area is susceptible to lake effect snow from Lake Erie and Lake Ontario to the west. On average, Utica is also colder than other Great Lakes cities as it is subject to northerly winds from the south and is situated in a valley, where cold air from the hills flows downward onto the city. As a result, temperatures in the single digits or below zero are not uncommon for winter nights in Utica. The lowest recorded temperature in the city was -28 °F (-33 °C), which occurred first on February 18, 1979, and again on January 12, 1981. The highest recorded temperature for the city was 100 °F (38 °C), which occurred on July 19, 1953. Normal yearly precipitation based on the 30-year average from 1981–2010 is 42.1 inches (1,069 mm), falling on an average 171 days.

According to the 2010 census, the population of the city was 62,235. The population density was 3,818.1 people per square mile (1,471.3/km²). There were 28,166 housing units at an average density of 1,696.7 per square mile (655.0/km²). The racial makeup of the city was 69.0% White, 15.3% African American, 0.3% Native American, 7.4% Asian, 0.1% Pacific Islander, 3.9% from other races, and 4.0% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 10.5% of the population.
There were 25,100 households out of which 27.0% had children under the age of 18 living with them, 35.5% were married couples living together, 16.9% had a female householder with no husband present, and 43.3% were non-families. 37.4% of all households were made up of individuals and 15.5% had someone living alone who was 65 years of age or older. The average household size was 2.28 and the average family size was 3.04.
In the city, the population was spread out with 24.1% under the age of 18, 10.0% from 18 to 24, 26.8% from 25 to 44, 20.2% from 45 to 64, and 18.8% who were 65 years of age or older. The median age was 37 years. For every 100 females there were 88.7 males. For every 100 females age 18 and over, there were 84.3 males.
The median income for a household in the city was $24,916, and the median income for a family was $33,818. Males had a median income of $27,126 versus $21,676 for females. The per capita income for the city was $15,248. About 19.8% of families and 24.5% of the population were below the poverty line, including 38.0% of those under age 18 and 12.1% of those age 65 and over.
The arrival of a large number of immigrants over the past several years has stanched a population loss that had been steady for more than three decades. With almost 60% percent of the city's population under 50 in 2006, the city amassed a large group of younger refugees. According to the Mohawk Valley Resource Center for Refugees, one quarter of Utica's population is represented by refugee families, with groups settling from countries including Bosnia and Herzegovina, Vietnam, Italy, Thailand, and Belarus. Bosnian Americans make up the largest nationality of recent immigrants in the city, numbering over 8,000. Other recent immigrant groups include Burmese, Sudanese, and Somali Bantu.
Throughout its history, Utica's recessions have been longer than the national average, with the outmigration of the defense and electrical manufacturing industries heavily contributing to the city's economic stress. From 1975 until 2001, Utica's economic growth rate was similar to that of Buffalo, with other Upstate New York cities such as Rochester and Binghamton outperforming the cities.
Today, the Mohawk Valley's economy is based upon logistics, industrial processes, machinery, and industry services. In Rome, the former Griffiss Air Force Base has developed into a regional employer by developing into a center for technology. The Turning Stone Resort & Casino in Verona has become a regional tourist destination, with multiple expansions during the 1990s and 2000s.
In the city of Utica, larger employers include the ConMed Corporation, a surgical device and orthotics manufacturer which occupies a former General Electric and Lockheed Martin factory, and Faxton St. Luke's Healthcare, a system of hospitals. Construction jobs, such as those for the Utica Arterial project, continue to provide growth for the public sector job market. Although passenger and commercial traffic on the Erie Canal has declined since the 19th century, its function as a barge canal has allowed heavy cargo to travel through Utica and bypass the New York State Thruway and intermodal railroads.

Arts and culture
Utica's position in the heart of the Northeastern United States has allowed for the blending of different cultures and traditions. The city shares similarities with other cities in the Central New York region, including its dialect, Inland Northern American English, which is present in other Rust Belt cities such as Buffalo, Elmira, and Erie, Pennsylvania.
The city shares cuisine similarities with the Mid-Atlantic states, with local and regional influences to cuisine. Utica's melting pot of immigrant and refugee groups, including Dutch, Italian, German, Irish, and more recently Bosnian, have played a role in developing cuisine, introducing international dishes such as ćevapi and pasticciotti[nb 1] into the community. Examples of Utica's staples include Utica riggies, Utica greens, half-moons, and tomato pie. Other popular dishes in the city include pirogues, penne alla vodka, and sausage and peppers. Utica's history is also rooted in the brewing industry, with the family-owned Matt Brewing Company ranked as the 15th-largest brewery in the United States by sales volume in 2012.
The Boilermaker Road Race, the city's annual marathon organized with the National Distance Running Hall of Fame, attracts runners from the region and around the world, with representation from nations such as Kenya and Romania. The Children's Museum of Natural History, Science and Technology, adjacent to Union Station, opened in 1963. In 2002, the museum partnered with NASA, featuring exhibits and events from the agency. The Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute, an art museum founded in 1960, is operated with the Pratt Institute and features its two-year college, permanent art collections and rotating exhibits.
The Utica Psychiatric Center, formerly a Greek Revival insane asylum, was the birthplace of the Utica crib, a restraining device which was frequently used at the asylum from the mid-19th century to 1887. The Stanley Center for the Arts, a mid-sized concert and performance venue, was designed by Thomas W. Lamb in 1928 and features theatrical and musical performances from local organizations and touring acts. The Hotel Utica, designed by architectural firm Esenwein & Johnson in 1921, was a nursing and residential care facility until the mid-1970s and has featured guests including Franklin Roosevelt, Judy Garland, and Bobby Darwin.
The Utica Comets, an affiliate of the National Hockey League's Vancouver Canucks, began playing in the American Hockey League in the 2013-14 AHL season, with home games at the Utica Memorial Auditorium.

Utica was the home of the Utica Blue Sox (1939-01), a New York–Penn League baseball team formerly an affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays, with their last affiliation being with the Florida Marlins. Former baseball teams also include the Utica Asylums (1900) and the Boston Braves affiliate, Utica Braves (1939–42).
Parks and recreation
Utica's park system contains over 677 acres of parks and recreation centers, with most city parks containing community centers and swimming pools. Architect Frederick Law Olmsted, Jr., who designed New York City's Central Park as well as Delaware Park in Buffalo, designed the Utica Parks and Parkway Historic District, a national historic district in Utica. Olmsted also designed Memorial Parkway, a four-mile, tree-lined boulevard connecting the district's parks while encircling the city's southern neighborhoods. The district includes the Roscoe Conkling Park, F.T. Proctor Park, the Parkway, and T.R. Proctor Park.
The city's municipal golf course, Valley View, was designed by golf course architect Robert Trent Jones and is located south of the city near the village of New Hartford. The Utica Zoo, a regional zoo located south of the city, and the Val Bialas Ski Chalet, an urban ski slope featuring skiing, snowboarding, outdoor skating, and tubing are located within Roscoe Conkling Park
Other district parks within Utica include the Addison Miller Park, Chancellor Park, Seymour Park, and Wankel Park, among smaller neighborhood parks.
Similar to Ithaca and Syracuse, Utica has a mixture of both public and private colleges and universities, with three state colleges and four private colleges in the Utica–Rome metropolitan area. The SUNY Polytechnic Institute, located partially within North Utica and the town of Marcy on an 850-acre campus, enrolls over 2,000 students and is one of eight technology colleges and 14 doctoral-granting universites within the State University of New York (SUNY). Empire State College and Mohawk Valley Community College, the largest college between Syracuse and Albany, serve the cities of Utica and Rome, with Mohawk Valley enrolling nearly 7,000 students.
Formerly a satellite campus of Syracuse University, Utica College is a four-year, private liberal arts college home to over 3,000 students. Established in 1904, St. Elizabeth College of Nursing partners with regional institutions to provide degrees in nursing. A satellite college of the Pratt Institute, PrattMWP College of Art and Design offers programs in the fine arts, while the Utica School of Commerce offers business-related programs throughout its campuses in Central New York.
Utica is served by the Utica City School District, with an enrollment of nearly 10,000 students in 2012. The district includes the Thomas R. Proctor High School, James H. Donovan Middle School, and twelve high schools. Formerly the city's original public high school, Utica Free Academy closed in 1987. Utica is also home to Notre Dame Junior Senior High School, a small parochial high school founded in 1959 by the Xaverian Brothers.
The Utica market is served by five stations affiliated with major American television networks, including WKTV (NBC), WUTR (ABC), WFXV (FOX), and WKTV-DT2 (CW). WTVH, the CBS affiliate in Syracuse, serves as the de facto CBS affiliate for the Utica TV market. Additionally, PBS affiliate WCNY-TV in Syracuse operates translator W22DO-D in the area, which broadcasts on analog channel 22 and digital channel 24. Some low-power television stations also broadcast in the area, such as WPNY-LP (MyNetwork TV). Cable television customers are served by the Syracuse offices of Time Warner Cable, which also offers a local news service, a local sports channel, and public-access channels. Dish Network and DirecTV also serve local satellite television customers with local broadcast channels.
While Griffiss International Airport in Rome primarily serves military and general aviation, regional, domestic and international passenger air transportation in the Utica–Rome metropolitan area is generally provided by Syracuse Hancock International Airport and Albany International Airport.
Amtrak's Empire, Maple Leaf, and Lake Shore Limited train services all have stops at Utica's Union Station. Utica's public bus transportation service is provided through the Central New York Regional Transportation Authority (CENTRO), a Syracuse mass transit operator which runs a total of twelve lines in the city and has a hub in downtown Utica. Intercity bus service is provided through Greyhound and Birnie Bus Company, with weekday and Saturday service to Syracuse and both services stopping at Union Station.
From the 1960s to the 1970s, New York state planners envisioned a system of arterial highways within Utica, some of which would include connections to Binghamton and Interstate 81. However, as a result of community opposition, only portions of the highway project project were completed, including the North–South Arterial Highway, which passes to the west of the city. Of the existing Utica highway network, six New York State highways, one three-digit interstate highway and one two-digit interstate highway pass through the city. New York State Route 49 and New York State Route 840 are both east-west expressways running along the north and south borders of the city, respectively. Both expressways have eastern termini within the city. New York State Route 5 and its alternate routes, New York State Route 5S and New York State Route 5A are east-west roads and expressways which pass through the city, with NY 5S's western terminus occurring in Utica. Along with NY 5 and Interstate 790, an indirect auxiliary highway of Interstate 90 in Utica, New York State Route 12 and New York State Route 8 form the North–South Arterial Highway.
Electricity generation in the city of Utica is provided by National Grid plc, a British energy corporation which acquired the city's former electricity provider, Niagara Mohawk, in 2002. The city is also near the crossroads of major electrical transmission lines, with substations in the town of Marcy and an expansion project in the planning and development stages by the New York Power Authority, National Grid, Con Edison, and NYSEG, a subsidiary of Iberdrola USA. In 2009, city businesses including Utica College and St. Luke's Medical Center created a microgrid, while in 2012, the Utica City Council explored the concept of a public, city owned power utility.
City rubbish is collected and disposed weekly by the Oneida-Herkimer Solid Waste Authority, a public benefit corporation which operates single-stream recycling, waste reduction and composting, and disposal of hazardous materials and demolition debris.
Utica's wastewater is treated by the Mohawk Valley Water Authority, with facilities capable of processing 32 million gallons of water per day. Water treated by the facilities is also tested for impurities including pathogens, nitrates, nitrites, and bacteria. The source of the city's drinking water is within the Adirondack Mountains, where freshwater from streams and creeks flows into the Hinckley Reservoir in Ohio, New York to the municipal water supply.
Primary healthcare services in Utica are provided by the Mohawk Valley Health System, a nonprofit organization which operates Faxton St. Luke's Healthcare and the St. Elizabeth Medical Center. The St. Luke's and Faxton hospital campuses operate a total of 370 acute and 202 long term beds, while the St. Elizabeth Medical Center operates 201 acute care beds.
