A LITTLE BIT OF TRIVIA
Onondaga Lakeis northwest of the city of Syracuse, New Yorkand south ofLake Ontario. It is located mostly in the suburban towns ofGeddesandSalina, in addition to a relatively small part in Syracuse proper, at the southeast end of the lake. Water outflows from thelaketo Lake Ontario through theOswego River. The lake is five miles (8 km) long and a mile (1.5 km) wide. It has an area of 4.6 square miles (11.9 square kilomters) and has a maximum depth of 63 feet (19 m). Although it is near theFinger Lakesregion, it is not traditionally counted as one of the Finger Lakes.
Seneca Lake is the largest of the glacial Finger Lakes of the U.S., the state of New York, and the deepest lake entirely within the state.
Keuka Lake is an unusual member of the Finger Lakes because it is Y-shaped, instead of long and narrow. Because of its shape, it was referred to in the past asCrooked Lake.
Canandaigua Lake is the fourth largest of the Finger Lakes, in the U.S. state of New York. It is called the "Chosen Spot" in the Seneca language.
