Welcome to The Finger Lakes Wiki!


The Finger Lakes Region is a geographically diverse region located in the heart of Upstate New York where there is a virtually endless list of places and activities. The Finger Lakes is home to over 100 wineries, vineyards and wine trails. The Finger Lakes Wiki intends to identify many great attractions and businesses with their own entry. We have everything from radio to racing to watersports here in the Finger Lakes. If there is not an article on something you were looking for, feel free to create it yourself.

About

The Finger Lakes Wiki is a new website and as such it needs expanding; feel free to edit any of the articles here and add any information you wish. Any red links you see are links to articles that do not exist yet but should be created. To make a red link into an article, just click the link, select blank page and write in the box. This is not Wikipedia, it is less strict and basic good faith edits are less likely to be reverted; however, it is not a blatant advertisement either. Feel free to add business info such as hours of operation, but please no grandiose claims or unsubstantiated libel of other businesses.

To get started searching this website, simply type in the search box at the top left underneath the picture, or start by clicking one of these links to cities/towns in the Finger Lakes Region: Canandaigua, Penn Yan, Geneva, Waterloo, Seneca Falls, Dundee, Watkins Glen, Ithaca, Cortland, Geneseo, Auburn, Syracuse, Skaneateles, and Naples.

The eight core counties of the Finger Lakes Region in which the eleven Finger Lakes themselves are located are Ontario County, Yates County, Seneca County, Schuyler County, Tompkins County, Livingston County, Onondaga County, and Steuben County.

Pretty much anything within these counties and the surrounding counties shown in the image to the left are within the focus here and could have it's own article.

DisclaimerEdit

This is a fairly informal en:Wiki that was created without certain direction. It was largely created in 2010 and may be out of date or inaccurate. There are several files which may not be licensed properly and will undergo an active deletion round. Edits can be made and pages can even be created by anyone without logging in so any substantial traffic is likely to bring some vandalism. Some pages are copied from Wikipedia where there is a relevant article there.
