The Finger Lakes region is known for its beauty, but look carefully and you will discover some of New York’s other abundant — and unusual — treasures. The cliffs of Excelsior Glen are scattered with ancient pictographs, and Bluff Point conceals the ruins of an unknown civilization. The wine industry has its own strange stories; discover why one wine producer was banned from using his own name. Among the oddities of the Finger Lakes region are the world’s largest pancake, a slice of Susan B. Anthony’s seventy-eight birthday cake and the anecdote of the boy who accidentally caught an eight-pound trout with his nose. Join author Melanie Zimmer and uncover these and other curiosities of the Finger Lakes.
