The New York State Film Office recently promoted Utica's Union Station as a place for film makers to use for a location shoot.

Union Station is one of the city's landmark buildings and the anchor of the Baggs Square neighborhood.

The station was originally opened in 1914 with an extensive renovation project that begun in 1978. Today the building still serves rail travel via Amtrak and the Adirondack Scenic Railroad. It is also a municipal building with a branch of the New York State DMV and some Oneida County offices.
