Are you a fan of foursquare and checking in with your mobile phone? Foursquare is a social network where you turn your errands and nights out into a game by collecting points. Check in to a location enough times, and you’ll be granted the title of mayor of that location. With your mayorship, you earn more points for your check-ins there and others will earn extra points if they check in while you’re there.
So what are the most prestigious mayorships in Utica and Central New York? Here’s our top 5 list.
Of all the Wal-Marts in Central New York, the one that has received the most check-ins is the store located in Herkimer. It’s also one of 2 locations on the list where you could buy a phone to do your foursquare check-ins.
Utica Memorial Auditorium
When there are several thousand people cheering on the Utica College hockey team or attending a circus or monster truck show, there will be only one attendee who could claim they are the mayor.
With over 1700 check-ins, the Utica area’s largest shopping mall is a tough mayorship to get. You’d need plenty to shopping trips to claim the crown here.
The honor of the venue with the most check-ins in Oneida County goes to the Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona with nearly 4000. You’ll need to hit the Stone 2 out of every 3 days in a month to oust the current mayor.
