Text removed[edit]

I removed this text from the page because it didn't seem to fit anywhere. It may or may not even be appropriate for this article. Seemed a shame to delete it totally though.

The Lake George Stakes, a Grade III race on turf for three-year-old Thoroughbred fillies is run at the Saratoga Race Course each year. The race is named for this lake.

I removed Notable Residents because I don't feel that a body of water can have residents, notable or otherwise. These entries should be relocated to appropriate articles and struck-through like this on this list.

  • Georgia O'Keeffe created many notable paintings while staying there with Alfred Stieglitz at his family's home.
  • Celebrity chef Rachel Ray was brought up at Lake George.
  • Katherine Patterson, the author of Bridge to Terabithia also resides on Lake George.

FYI to whoever maintains this article: The infobox at the right side of the screen lists the lake as 250 ft deep, while the text (under Geography) says the lake is 200 ft deep. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Rn86 (talkcontribs) 00:55, 27 August 2012 (UTC)
