Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi hosted the 'Nano in Your Neighborhood' forum in Utica last night.

Dozens of Utica residents packed the DeSales center to hear first hand how they can get involved in Nano Utica.

Brindisi said the nano industry revitalized the Albany area and he know it will do the same thing in Utica, but he doesn't want to neglect the inner city residents.

He added that there will be many opportunities for Central New Yorkers to take advantage of the Nanotech industry from labor positions all the way up to advanced degrees.
