Lake Success

Lake Success
Beginnings: Now remembered for housing the United Nations after World War II, Lake Success is part of the remnants of the last glacier of the Ice Age. One of the largest "kettle-hole'' lakes on Long Island, it abounded with rumors of an underground channel to Long Island Sound, though geologists dispelled that myth in the mid-19th Century. The Matinecocks, early inhabitants, called the lake Sucut after one of their chiefs, from which Dutch settlers derived the present name.
