Skaneateles, New York

Skaneateles lies on one of the several Finger Lakes. It is an affluent community of much beauty. Derek Jetter is rumored to be building a home here. Founded in 1830, it was originally part of the town of Marcellus, and was incorporated as a village in 1833.

According to the Skaneateles history page Irish immigrants came here to work in factories, industries, and on the Erie Canal. Others became farmers or merchants. Many wealthy New York City residents summered here due to the climate and beautiful waters.

Take a look..
