It happens more often than you think. Some well known celebrities have been seen in this part of the state as recent as early March.

Here's a list of celebrities who have visited upstate and central New York recently

1. Adam Levine: In March, the Maroon 5 singer stopped by Saratoga Coffee Traders in Saratoga Springs to enjoy a cup of Death Wish Coffee. Not only did he and the band grace the café with their presence, they also gave employees tickets to their concert at the Times Union Center that night.

4. John Cena: Back in mid-March, WWE wrestler John Cena posted a picture to his Instagram account of the Utica exit on the Thruway. While there's no reason why he could have been passing through the city, most people are thinking it's because there was a WWE event in Albany.
