New York: Thousand Islands – Visiting Boldt & Singer Castles

The Thousand Islands region of New York is located in the far north of the State bordering Canada. The border runs through the St Lawrence River which runs from Lake Ontario out to the North Atlantic. There are over 1800 islands in the channel, ranging from tiny to large ones. The area was popular with the rich at the turn of the 20th Century. There are two castles on these islands which are open to the public.
