This lake has the mansions & the most beautiful ice skating rink in winter. Walking around this lake, you really get to see a wide variety of architecture styles and in my case to see how the other half lives from the outside. Perfectly manicured lawns, elaborate flower displays, interesting yard sculptures,perfect winter scenes. It is nearly impossible to now wonder what the folks who live on this lake do for a living. Takes you back to a time when you think the city must have been building itself on industry where the few barons became quite wealthy and but these magnificent homes....at least this is what my mind thinks of:).
