Finger Lakes

The Finger Lakes NOCN includes Cayuga, Ontario, Seneca, Wayne and Yates counties. This NOCN contains just over one-fifth of the region’s population and three smaller cities, Auburn, Canandaigua and Geneva. This subarea is the center of the Finger Lakes and almost one-third of its territory is covered by water. One-fifth of the more than 10,000 square miles in the FLPPS region is lakes and rivers which often impede travel from one part of the region to the other.
