Just up the road from the Boilermaker Finish Line is the Court Street Hill.  This area on Utica's West Side has seen better days, with many boarded up homes and closed businesses like Rite Aid.

Platt's photos must have been taking on a Monday evening, which is trash night in West Utica, because there generally there isn't that much garbage on the street.

Today in there part of town there are new businesses like the pizza parlor and tattoo shop at the corner of Court and Schuyler Streets.
