'New to Naomi' has been going on for quite some time now, so I figured it's time to explore the big one - Utica. This is part one of the Utica series, which took me by the Parkway to the Utica Zoo, Proctor Park, and that area of the city.
Steeped in history and legends, New York is filled with stories of the forgotten, eerie and the weird that influence us everyday. You probably know about Utica's "Parkway Eagle," But do you know about the other Eagle monuments the Proctor family placed around Utica?
Want to see a view of Proctor Park in Utica you've never seen before? YouTube user Aaron Walerstein hooked a camera up to a remote-control quad helicopter and captured a snowy bird's eye view of the iconic Utica park.
