The above image of Halfmoon Lake, previously know as Crescent Lake, is from a double postcard dated 1940, though the photograph was probably taken at an earlier period.   Where was the picture taken: Do you know?

Halfmoon Lake, located just off Route 28, is a glacial formed lake with a substrate 75% sand, 25% rock, and a shoreline 90% wooded and 10% marsh.

Halfmoon boasts good availability of large- and smallmouth bass, yellow and white perch, hornpout, and also a summer abundance of pumpkinseed and bluegill sunfish. Ice-out is usually expected by late April, though often earlier.
