Utica Metro area is 300,000. Granted it's about half the Syracuse Metro area, but there is little to no advertising in a decent sized population center just 45 mins away. Thats 300,000 people with nothing to do on a Saturday.I find it interesting that people are ignoring the Utica/Rome area and instead jumping to Albany. Utica is obviously a smaller market, but I think attracting people from there is much more realistic. Being within a 1.5 hr drive is the sweet spot to market. Just circle a radius of area within 1.5 hrs away from Cuse and focus on that. Watertown to the north, Rochester to the west, Utica to the east, and Binghamton to the south. Anything beyond that seems like a waste of resources.
