Finger Lakes Region
Photography by Bill Banaszewski
Narrative by Alyssa La Faro
Visible from more than 200 miles above the Earth’s surface, the Finger Lakes are one of the prized and natural wonders of New York and the world. In a word, they are impressive —the 11 Finger Lakes encompass 380 miles of shoreline, 25,000 square miles of watershed, and trillions of gallons of clean drinking water.Through pictures, Bill Banaszewski tells the story of the Finger Lakes Region: the water, the scenic beauty, agriculture, wildlife, and cultural heritage that draws visitors near and far and keeps them coming back for years to come.
