Utica New York is more than just the county seat of Oneida County. It is also called the Second Chance City as termed by Reader's Digest. Today, Utica is home to many Bosnian immigrants and continues to be the destination for many refugees. Reader's Digest suggested that it is because of Utica's social services, affordable living conditions, and entry-level manufacturing jobs that make the city a popular choice for those who wish to pursue the American dream. This is a much more notable nickname, as Utica has also been called The City that God Forgot, in reference to its declining economic state due to a severe decline in manufacturing. Regardless, its suburbia is still growing, and the city continues to be the hubbub for growth amongst its neighbors. Utica strives to recreate its industrial era success, including the revitalization of Utica's Union Station, which brings forth business via Amtrak and the Adirondack Scenic Railway.1
