in Utica, New York that are up and down the
Memorial Parkway. Built on land granted to William Crosby in 1734, Utica was the site of Old Fort Schuyler, erected
in 1758. Sparsely settled for many years, Utica did not begin to develop until after the Revolution; its real growth as a

growth of many towns around it. Edward A. Hanna Park, downtown, is known for its scenic landscaping.
