Main street
Main street Skaneateles Lake (/ˌskæniˈætləs/ or local /ˌskɪniˈætləs/)[1] is one of the Finger Lakes in central New York in the United States. The name Skaneateles means long lake in one of the local Iroquoian languages. The lake is sometimes referred to as “The Roof Garden of the Lakes” because its altitude (863.27 ft or 263.12 m) is higher than the other Finger Lakes.[2] It is 16 mi (26 km) long (17 mi or 27 km long including the bogs at the south end of the lake) and on average 0.75 mi (1.21 km) wide, with a surface area of 13.6 sq mi (35 km2), and a maximum depth of 315 ft (96 m). The cleanest of the Finger Lakes, its water is so pure that the city of Syracuse and other municipalities use it unfiltered. The City of Syracuse spends about 2.3 million dollars a year to protect lake quality, sixteen people inspecting (usually twice a year) each of the 2600 properties in the watershed, which is relatively small, compared to other Finger Lakes. William Henry Seward called it “The most beautiful body of water in the world.”

i can see for miles and miles……… the prettiest finger lake.. and the cleanest. we generally only visit 2 or 3 of the 5 finger lakes.. mostly because there’s nothing to see on the other ones..unless your a fisherman.. we aren’t

  1. I’m putting this on my list of places to visit! We used to explore around Cayuga when my son was at Ithaca College, but never really got to spend much time there. Did visit a few wineries though 🙂 You did such a great job capturing this area, Kathy..it all looks wonderful!
