It's been how long since the Knights of Columbus headquarters in Downtown Utica was ravaged by fire and closed? A couple years? Yet, there it still stands with the "no trespassing" sign prominently posted in front.... a local landmark ... the large yellow brick building attached to the rear, all boarded up.
What is going on here? Was there insurance? Why no reconstruction?
Perhaps it is none of our business, because the Knights of Columbus is a private organization . . . But it IS our business when there is BLIGHT on Genesee Street . . . which is exactly what this is. This is particularly annoying being next to the Public Library and across from the Munson-Williams-Proctor Museum of Art
The Knights need to get off the stick and fix their buildings.
