The two rivers of the world most famous for their beauty are the St. Lawrence and the Rhine. The upper part of the St. Lawrence -- that region known as the Thousand Islands compares, to say the least, favorably with the Rhine from Mayence to Cologne, in scenery, and far eclipses it as a summer resort" in supplying "something to do."

In the very heart of the Thousand Islands stands the rugged promontory known as Edgewood Park, reaching far out into the river and commanding a view in all directions unexcelled in grandeur. Alexandria Bay, the great hub of the Thousand Islands, is distant but a few rods, and directly across the river, in plain view, is the new casino of the Thousand Island Yacht Club, with its famous golf course.

Edgewood Park is an ideal summer resort. The grounds are high and dry, and nature has covered its granite bluffs with stately shade trees of birch, hemlock, pine, maple and mountain ash. As a woodland park, Edgewood has no equal on the river. The Edgewood Hotel stands on an elevated site commanding the river's enchanting views from its broad verandas., The Hotel is in the midst of a park of sixty acres, where there are walks and drives, golf links and tennis courts, private gardens of four acres for the tables, and in front- the river.

Edgewood Park is in the midst of many famous island villas, the summer homes of noted men of wealth, which are of easy access by the Edgewood private yacht Geisha. Up and down the river for miles are the wondrous islands, many covered by imposing summer homes, unequaled elsewhere in the world. These islands are separated by winding channels of swift flowing water as clear as crystal. Twice a day the steam yachts, Capt. Visger and Ramona, make a trip amidst these islands, winding for hours through a continuous panorama of narrow channels and swirling rifts.

Each succeeding year the popularity of the Thousand Islands increases. Their natural beauty enhanced by the lavish expenditures of wealthy men, and the rare purity and sweetness of the air that seems to ever cling about the broad St. Lawrence, is making this resort more and more famous.

The season at Edgewood opens June 10th and closes October 1st. Take the St. Lawrence River boats on the Clayton Line of the New York Central to Alexandria Bay. For further information regarding routes, etc., address,
