DESTINATION: FINGER LAKES

If you’ve somehow managed to be old enough to read this and still don’t know why the Finger Lakes are called the Finger Lakes, TAKE look at a map. They are, with no regard to actual anatomy, from east to west, Otisco, Skaneateles, Owasco, Cayuga, Seneca, Keuka, Canandaigua, Honeoye, Canadice, Hemlock and Conesus.

QUICK

Where to go

Canandaigua

The Constellation Brands – Marvin Sands Performing Arts Center, known as CMAC, is an awesome concert venue.

Seneca Falls

Visit the Women’s Rights National Historical Park, which preserves the sites associated with the First Women’s Rights Convention, in 1848, and the National Women’s Hall of Fame.

Palmyra

The village was the “Queen of Erie Canal towns,” but it’s better known as the site where the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints — the Mormon church —was founded. The annual Hill Cumorah Pageant tells the story.

WHEN IT COMES TO WINE, IT’S THE LAKES

T

here are plenty of things to see and do in the Finger Lakes. Museums. Boating. Parks. Fishing. Eating.

Just last week in the New Times, we reported about a Sweet Treat Trail. And about open houses at creameries in the region. But let’s not kid ourselves. When many people think of taking a day trip to the west, they have one thing on their minds: wine. There are more than 100 wineries and vinyards scattered through the region, and the existence of the lakes and the wineries is more than a convenient, scenic coincidence. It turns out the Finger Lakes are particularly deep. The two longest — Cayuga and Seneca — are among the deepest in North America: Seneca, 618 feet; Cayuga, 435 feet. Consider that Lake Erie is 210 feet at its deepest and averages 62 feet deep. Not so great, eh? Because the lakes are so deep, geologists say, they act as a huge heat sink, holding summer warmth into the winter and providing a cooling effect in the summer. And that’s perfect for the nearby grape vines, which are protected from killing frosts while shoots are growing in the spring and before the harvest in the fall. Wine trails have been organized to provide some order to the choices. The Seneca Lake Wine Trail

has 34 member wineries; the Keuka Lake Wine Trail has seven. The Cayuga Lake Wine Trail includes 15 members, and a cidery just to mix things up. The member wineries offer and coordinate events like tastings, food pairings, barbecues and other activities. You can search by date, price and location in the calendar here: tinyurl.com/ml5k8oe. Two of the wineries are among the oldest in America: O-Neh-Da Vineyard, founded in 1872 on Hemlock Lake, and The Pleasant Valley Wine Co., founded in 1860 on Keuka Lake. The prudent trailista will make sure there’s a designated driver in the group. Or hire a transportation company to haul you from winery to winery. The official advice from the Finger Lakes wine industry is to plan to visit three to five wineries in a day. “You don’t want to overdo it,” the website suggests. The site also suggests a little research: Do you like whites or reds? Sweet or dry? Are you interested in fruit wine or ice wine? Finally, the experts warn to start the day with a full breakfast, and to not forget lunch. Wine tastings on an empty stomach can get ugly. Salud. SNT

Watkins Glen

“The Glen” is home to some of the finest auto racing in North America, including NASCAR, a vintage series and a six-hour endurance race.

Genesee Country Village and Museum

The site, in Mumford, is one of the largest living history museums in the country. There’s also a gallery and a nature center.

Corning

The Corning Museum of Glass is a world-class facility. The Rockwell Museum of Western Art claims the finest American Western and Native American art collection this side of the Mississippi.

A BOLDT THROUGH THE HEART

T

Watertown

urns out, there aren’t 1,000 islands in the Thousand Islands. There are 1,793. Or maybe 1,864. Depends who you believe.

The uncertainty isn’t because they can’t figure out what an island is. They have a rule for that: The land must be at least 1 square foot and completely out of water for 365 days — don’t think there’s some Leap Year loophole; those years, it’s gotta be out of the water for 366 days — and have at least one living tree growing on it. The gateway to the Thousand Islands is the village of Alexandria Bay, or Alex Bay to its friends. But the main attraction — you know, aside from the wonderful fishing and boating and camping and the beautiful surroundings — sits on one of those islands. The story of Boldt Castle is almost too good to be true. George Boldt — hotel magnate and multi-millionaire proprietor of the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, in New York City — wanted to build a huge, 12-room residence, in the style of a Rhineland castle, as a testament to his love for his wife, Louise. He planned to give it to her, of course, on Valentine’s Day. And, of course, she died. With a tale like that, it would have been fine if all that remained was a lean-to from which to watch the lake freighters pass. But much of what was intended

to be one of the largest private homes in the country had been completed when Boldt, in his grief, ordered that all work be stopped. He walked away from the project, unable to face the prospect of living there without his Louise. And so it sat for the next 73 years. The island includes the six-story “castle” and four other masonry structures that are also architecturally notable. On a nearby island is a huge, distinctive yacht house and a summer home for an estate that includes farms, canals, a golf course, tennis courts, stables and a polo field. In 1977, the Thousand Islands Bridge Authority acquired the island and yacht house, with the understanding that all revenues would be plowed back into the properties for restoration. The authority has spent more than $15 million toward that end. Access is by ferry from both the United States and Canada. For example, boats leave from Alex Bay every 30 minutes. There is also docking available for private craft. And, believe it or not, it’s Heart Island. SNT

Visit the only zoo dedicated specifically to New York’s wild animals and ecosystems. Or head to Fort Drum for the 10th Mountain Divison and Fort Drum Museum; adults need photo ID to enter the post.

Kingston, Ontario

Cross the Thousand Islands bridge and go south on the 401, and you can taste a little foreign culture, such as the Marine Museum of the Great Lakes and the International Hockey Museum.

A Non-Boldt Alternative

You can not only visit a 110-year-old castle on an island, you can stay there. Singer Castle, on Dark Island, offers tours … and lodging for up to six. syracusenewtimes.com | 2014 S U M M E R T I M E S

QUICK TAKE

The village of Lake Placid has a population of 2,521. It’s 1.5 square miles, but 0.2 square miles is in water. Singer Lana Del Ray was raised there.

Where to go

Old Forge

Believe it or not, Old Forge Hardware is worth a stop. There’s a water park, rustic inns nearby and lots of lakes in the Fulton Chain.

The Adirondack Museum

You’ll spend more time than you expected at this excellent museum, learning about Adirondack history and people.

The High Peaks

In New York, 46 mountains have summits 4,000 feet above sea level. Newbies, try Cascade Mountain, southeast of Lake Placid: 2-mile trail to summit (about two hours), 2,000-foot elevation gain, breathtaking views. Photo by Robert S. Donovan

IT TAKES AN OLYMPIAN EFFORT TO SEE ALL THE SIGHTS

Culture Along The Northway

T

he world came to Lake Placid in 1932, and again in 1980. Perhaps this summer, it’s time for you to visit. What is there to do in a winter Olympics venue when it’s not winter? In summer, not even the nearby High Peaks are snowcapped. But there’s plenty to do, and much of it has to do with the residue from 1932 and 1980. For example, there are ski jumps just south of the village. You can (a) take an elevator to the top for a beautiful view of the Adirondacks, or (b) see ski jumpers practice on plastic runs on the hill, or (c) watch aerialists soar in mid-air twists and flips before landing in a 750,000-gallon pool. Who needs snow? Across the street is the cauldron for the 1980 Olympic flame. The flame moved on, but its container sits where the Games’ opening and closing ceremonies were held. A little farther out of town on Route 73 is Mt. Van Hoevenburg, the venue for the bobsled, luge and other sliding sports. Again, who needs ice? In summer, you can speed down the run in a “sled” with wheels, not runners. On your way back to town, turn left on Adirondac Loj Road. Go to the end — 5 miles — and park in the lot (there’s a fee) to hike 1.3 miles to the top of Mt. Jo. It’s just 700 feet of ascent, and the view is so

outstanding, it’s included in the National Geographic screen saver images on Apple computers. Between the Loj and the ski jumps is a road to John Brown’s farm. In 1845, abolitionist Gerrit Smith bought land nearby and granted it to former slaves. That appealed to Brown, who went on to lead an assault on a federal facility in Harpers Ferry, Va., helping trigger the Civil War. Back in the village, walk up and down the main street — yes, it’s Main Street — and shop. Or just people-watch. Or, if you haven’t had your fill of Olympic residue, visit the hockey rinks and see the sheet where the Miracle on Ice occurred. The facility also has an Olympic museum, with plenty of memorabilia from the 1980 U.S. men’s hockey team and other athletes. And — what do you know? — out front there’s a display of snow, even during the summer. (It’s just Zamboni droppings.) SNT

Catch a concert at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center. Watch the horses in August at the race track. Shop until you drop at the factory outlets near Lake George.

Revolution Along The Northway

Start at the Saratoga National Historic Park, site of a decisive battle in the American Revolution. Then visit Fort William Henry and Fort Ticonderoga, just to the north, for living history demonstrations.

Raquette Lake

Take a dinner cruise on the lake. Visit Sagamore, a former Great Camp of the Vanderbilts and open to the public. Camp and canoe and backpack to your heart’s content.

The Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute has a substantial permanent collection of internationally recognized works. And the Adirondack Scenic Railroad always offers a good ride. And scenic.

SYLVAN BEACH: MORE THAN JUST A BEACH

T

he saying has nearly become a cliché: “Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.”

Some attribute it to Maimonides, a 12th-century Spanish philosopher, physician and Torah scholar. Some describe it as an ancient Chinese proverb. More modern, and credible, research gives the credit to Anne Isabella Thackeray Ritchie in her novel Mrs. Dymond. She wrote, “I suppose the Patron meant that if you give a man a fish he is hungry again in an hour. If you teach him to catch a fish you do him a good turn.” If it was her, it looks like a good copy editor came along behind her and cleaned it up. But we know where the following comes from — the Sylvan Beach website — and can imagine what it tells us about Sylvan Beach: “Teach a man to fish, and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day.” OK, so Sylvan Beach is laid-back. And the fishing is reported to be excellent. Sorry, you missed the Walleye Tournament. But there’s plenty to do, as there should be for a community that had a reputation in the 19th century as a destination. Public transportation — railroads

and ferries — made it a desirable resort community. It was referred to as the “Coney Island of Central New York.” First, of course, there’s a beach in Sylvan Beach. And it has an amusement park, with a roller coaster, Ferris wheel, bumper cars, a spinning teapot ride and carnival games. The park will open the last weekend in June. Every Tuesday, the carnival moves into the streets. It’s Bikes at the Beach, starting at 5 p.m. Motorcycles flood the streets. People-watching heaven; what could be more entertaining? Perhaps a performance at the gazebo. All you need is a lawn chair or blanket and a cooler. This year, Pirate’s Weekend — when the men are men, and the women put up with it — is July 17-20. The weekend includes a concert by the Fabulous Ripcords, pub crawls, treasure hunts, crafts for kids, pirating lessons, bonfires and a sand castle competition. Arrrrrgh. SNT

Turning Stone

Hard to miss that tower off Thruway Exit 33. Even harder at night, lit in fluorescent colors. The resort has gambling (of course), shows, plenty of dining and several affiliated golf courses.

Cooperstown

Cooperstown is more than just the Baseball Hall of Fame. Don’t overlook the Farmer’s Museum, where you’ll find LaFayette’s own Cardiff giant.

Howe Caverns

It’s spelunking without the equipment or the training. The stroll along the underground stream and the boat ride on it are amazing but not for the claustrophobic. syracusenewtimes.com | 2014 S U M M E R T I M E S

QUICK TAKE

It’s not summer until every weekend of the precious warm Central New York months is filled up with a festival (or two … or three). Here are a few keepers.

By Jessica Novak

What to do

Mountain Jam

Taste of Syracuse

June 6-7. Downtown Syracuse. Free. Tasteofsyracuse. com. It’s hard to argue with a selection of free acts downtown, including Blues Traveler, Driftwood, The Ruddy Well Band, The Goonies, Sophistafunk and more.

Sterling Stages

Must-see: The M&T Syracuse Jazz Fest. Onondaga Community College. Friday and Saturday, July 11 and 12. Free. Syracusejazzfest. com. Photo by The Queens Hall / Flickr

NEW TIME, PLACE, CLASSIC JAZZ FEST QUALITY

F

rank Malfitano, founder and producer of the M&T Syracuse Jazz Fest, knows how to put on a festival, especially after more than 30 years of hosting acts including Ray Charles, Dizzy Gillespie and Aretha Franklin.

This year, he’ll add to that impressive list with one of the hottest acts on the circuit, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, and one of the greatest legends on the planet, B.B. King. “He’s iconic,” Malfitano says of the King of the Blues. “He’s one of the top five household names and legendary entertainers. He’s B.B. King. You only have to say that once. Everybody knows who he is. It’s mega.” The festival has moved both location and date: back at OCC on a new weekend intended to avoid graduation ceremonies and the Fourth of July holiday. “We didn’t want to force people to make choices,” Malfitano explains. The festival will also feature a solid dose of local talent, including Julia Goodwin, Nick Ziobro and Mark Doyle’s Guitar Noir. Other acts include Igor Butman & The Moscow State Jazz Orchestra featuring Fantine, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and Raul Midon. “Everything’s really big this year,” Malfitano explains.

Igor Butman and B.B. King’s groups will feature 18 pieces each, Trombone Shorty and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy will feature 11 pieces and Doyle’s Guitar Noir will include 10. “Lots of large ensembles on the stage this year,” Malfitano says. “Big and new are the themes.” Big and new capture the headliners perfectly, as King is one of the biggest names in the music world and Shorty is bringing in the next generation of New Orleans. At 28, Shorty, brings new energy to NoLa tunes. Meanwhile, King, 88, keeps the tradition alive. As for the annual sleeper act, Malfitano predicts Midon will be the show-stealer. “The guy looks like Donnie Hathaway, sings like Stevie Wonder and plays guitar like Jose Feliciano,” he says. “Look out!” SNT

June 26 to 29; July 31 to Aug. 3; Sept. 18 to 21. Tickets are $70 in advance, $85 at the gate; Saturday-only passes are $40/$50. sterlingstage.com. These themed festivals are full of major names and regional favorites.

NY State Blues Fest

July 18-19. Clinton Square. Free. Nybluesfest.com. Back in action, the revived Blues Fest will bring Dana Fuchs, Johnny Rawls and more.

Grassroots Festival

July 17-20. Trumansburg Fairgrounds. $130 at the gate for weekend, $40 to $55 day of. Grassrootsfest.org. Grassroots will bring some of the biggest names this year including Donna the Buffalo and Anders Osborne.

DON’T MISS THIS BAND ON THE RISE

W

ith stunning three-part harmonies and heart-wrenching songwriting, the Brooklyn-based Lone Bellow has been lighting the world on fire since its explosive self-titled debut album was released in January 2013.

They conquered South by Southwest soon after (in March), leaving fest-goers with the band’s name on their lips. The album was called one of the best of the year by People Magazine and has been lauded by, among others, The New York Times, The Associated Press, Paste, Forbes and Filter. The group — featuring lead vocalist and songwriter Zach Williams, mandolin player and singer Kanene Pipkin and singer/guitarist Brian Elmquist — combines vintage stylings with modern tastes, creating a brilliant and eerily enveloping sound. Though the term “Brooklyn band” might come loaded with assumptions in 2014, this group breaks the mold by delivering authentic country soul (all three have Southern roots) with palpable conviction, only further proven in their haunting live performances. Though the band emerged at a time flush with acts of the same vein (think Mumford & Sons, The Civil Wars and The Lumineers), they’ve effectively carved out their own path and proven it through the intense success they’ve drawn in their short time on the scene.

The trio started when Williams’ wife was injured in a horseback riding accident that left her paralyzed from the neck down. Williams picked up the guitar and started writing songs focusing on prominent themes in his life, including tragedy and hope. After recovering, the couple moved in 2010 to Brooklyn, where they met Elmquist (who had gone to school at Lynchburg College with Williams) and Pipkin. They began as Zach Williams & The Lone Bellow, shortening the name by the time they joined Descendant Records. At times, they also include Ben Mars on bass, Brian Murphy on keyboards, Matt Knapp on lap steel and electric guitar, Jason Pipkin on banjo and mandolin and Brian Griffin on drums. This band on the rise is a must-see for music-lovers of all types. SNT

Lake Street Dive

The Westcott Theater. Thursday, June 26, 8 p.m. $17. This Brooklyn-based super funky jazz/soul fourpiece formed in Boston in 2004.

A LONG RIDE WITH A REWARD AT THE END

W

hile running races and triathlons seem to get all the attention, bikers are not to be ignored, especially the brilliant bunch that designed the Point to Pint Ride, which gives cyclists the chance to ride a 25-, 50- or 100-mile course ending with a pint (or two or three …) at Empire Brewing Company. The event, put on by Empire and Syracuse Bicycle, provides cyclists the chance to tackle a challenging course, appropriate to their level, with a group that gets to enjoy some cold ones at the end. The “Full Pint” 100-mile ride begins with a breakfast before bikers set out at 9 or 10 a.m., finishing by 5 p.m. The “Half Pint” 50-mile ride starts at 1, finishing by 6 p.m., and “The Sampler” 25-mile ride runs 2:30 to 5 p.m. All are welcome to join for the party afterward, 4 to 7 p.m. at Empire. The event also gives back. Erin Scala, an extremely active athlete in the Syracuse racing community, participates in the event among others, including the

Athleta Iron Girl and the Empire State half marathon. Scala suffers from a degenerative eye condition called retinitis pigmentosa, which means she can see only dark and light. But the challenges don’t stop her. Money raised last year helped her purchase a Cannondale tandem bicycle. She aspires to ride in Paralympic cycling events. “There is nothing that she won’t try,” says her father, John Scala. “She doesn’t let anything stop her.” For cyclists, the timeless question gets answered on Aug. 24: How far would you ride for a beer?
