And oddly enough, the similarly-looking Chautauqua Lake in far western NY has both a ferry and a bridge across it. I've taken the ferry both when it was the only way to shave 20 miles off your car ride and a couple times when it was the olde-fashioned alternative to the bridge. But to be fair, the reason they could build a bridge across the lake is because it is only 70-something feet deep (and people would nowadays likely protest a bridge across a Finger Lake: people protested the bridge across Chautauqua but only because they thought it was a boondoggle rather than for aesthetic reasons.)
