Immigrants Fuel Utica's Revitalization

Utica is now home to about 6,000 Bosnians, Russians and Vietnamese, almost 10 percent of the city's total population. Most have arrived in the past eight years... "We're clearly in a situation in Utica of losing population at a fast pace," said Paul Hagstrom, an economics professor at nearby Hamilton College who has been studying the economic impact of immigrants to the region. "They've really been our only source of population replacement. They've played a pretty big role."
