Geneva calls itself "the gateway to the fingerlakes".
It seems to be more "doorway to the wine cellar" because of its prominence in the wine-tasting tourist activities.

Originally it was the Seneca Indian settlement of Kanadasaga.
The city was last incorporated in 1871 as Geneva.
Today Geneva is a village, a town and a city, all concentric and overlapping.

13500 people in 5000 households with 3000 families; family income is $41000
