The Finger Lakes is a group of 11 long, narrow, roughly north–south lakes in a region called the Finger Lakes region in Central NY, in the US. This region is defined as a bioregion and is a popular tourist destination.
The lakes' shapes reminded early mapmakers of human fingers, and the name stuck. They are also characteristic glacial Finger Lakes. Cayuga(435 feet deep) and Seneca (618 feet) Lakes are among the deepest in the United States, with bottoms well below sea level. They are also the longest Finger Lakes, though neither width exceeds 3.5 miles; Seneca Lake is 38.1 miles long, and 66.9 square miles the largest in total area.
