Picture Skaneateles

Skaneateles Water Department

Village Trustee, Mark Roney, volunteers his time to “take care of business”, and, to take marvelous images of the StoryBook Village. When I asked him to use his pics, Mark said: “Of course, it’s all about the beauty”.

This is the Water Works Gate Station for the City of Syracuse, with whom we have a Love / Hate relationship. In 1794 they “bought” our water and built us the seawall and pier we enjoy (and photograph) today.

They also put out of business all the water powered factories located by the stream they diverted the water from.
