I'm looking for a New Yorker
cartoon that references Utica, NY.

I've GIS'd, New Yorker store archive'd, etc. I'm hoping someone just remembers the thing.
I believe it was full-page and that it was in color, which makes me think it was a Roz Chast cartoon, but I could be wrong about that.
It was about the terrible fates that may befall you if you try to drive in New York. One of the fates is that you get lost and end up in Utica. I think another fate was getting in some kind of trouble with Russian gangsters in Brighton Beach.
I remember it as having a person in a car in the center panel, with little roads leading to the terrible fates which made up the border of the cartoon.
I saw it in the magazine in the past 3-7 years and I suspect more specifically the last 4-5, but of course I could be wrong about that.
I could be wrong about everything.
