Over the years, there has been a negative vibe in the area. This week's Top 5 video is a dose of positivity for Utica and Central New York.

Matt and Naomi from your Workday Kickoff, share their "Top 5." This week, it's all about things they enjoy in Central New York. This video is also a joint-effort, compared to their other "Top 5s" - which will be pinning them against each other.

So here's their list - The Top 5 reasons why they love Utica and Central New York:

1 - The Community: Just look what happened with the whole 'comedian' incident. Look at all the people who came together, all the people who stood up for Utica.

2 - The Food: Does this one really need an explanation... Really?

3 - Changes in Weather: We get to experience all four seasons - Yes, we deal with the cold, but when everything comes back to life in spring it's great. Summer is amazing, and the falling leaves in autumn is beautiful.

4 - Everything is Right Here: You want to go shopping? You have plenty of choices. Want to go camping? Head to the Adirondack Park. Want to see a show? No problem. You don't have to travel long distances to experience everything exciting - It's all right here.

5 - No Traffic: When was the last time you were stuck in traffic in Utica? If the roads were backed up, we bet you didn't wait more than 10 minutes. Traffic here is not a problem, and that's one less thing we have to worry about.
