Skaneateles, NY is located in the eastern Finger Lakes region in Onondaga County, the same county that Syracuse is located in. Many of the millionaires from Syracuse have homes on Skaneateles Lake and commute to the city. Skaneateles is turning into a small tourist town now that the Finger Lakes Region is becoming more popular because of all the wineries nearby.

Town of Skaneateles population is about 7,000
Village of Skaneateles population is about 2,500

What a gorgeous town! I still remember reading about Skaneateles in Tim Green's "The Fourth Perimeter", a thrilling story about a man on a mission to assasinate the president while he visits Skaneateles Lake. ;o) Just to clear up the confusion, the name is pronounce "Skinny-Atlas", right?

Default Need to clear up that we aren't all millionaires :)

I live in Skaneateles, NY with my husband and 2 daughters. We moved here from the Binghamton area 15 years ago. This town is absolutely beautiful as your pictures show, but I feel an obligation to state that there are a lot of regular folk that live here - me included. Not millionaires, just people raising there families, struggling to get by in the current economy, and lucky enough to be able to live somewhere with good schools and low/to no crime.

Hope this isn't taken the wrong way

Default Skaneateles

"Milionaires from Syracuse"? I didn't know there were any millionaires in Syracuse! Are they execs from Carrier? Seriously, though, thanks for the beautiful photos - are any of those streets, Jordan St.? My parents owned a business there back in the '60's. Even then, Skaneateles was sort of up-scale, with many wealthy families living there. Although I can see it's very lovely and quaint, it has a very touristy feel to it - almost too Disneyland-ish.

Don't worry, I understand what you mean. The reason I suggested Skaneateles was because I knew there are still a lot of inexpensive homes around there. It's only the homes on the lakeshore that are the mansions.

Thanks so much for your pictures. It makes me want to get out of Florida more and more. I really miss the Syracuse area.
