Ice flows move towards the beach under ominous looking skies at Durand Eastman Beach. Rochester N.Y.
The park contains several lakes. The two largest are Durand Lake and Eastman Lake. The park's northern boundary is defined by 5,000 ft of Lake Ontario coastline. The most commonly used parts of the park are part of Rochester; the more remote areas are part of Irondequoit. The park is almost completely surrounded by Irondequoit, and is connected to Rochester by an easement.
Historically, the beach at Durand-Eastman was much wider than it is today. In 1915, bath houses were built on the lakeshore. They became unusable in 1949 due to rising water levels. The building was eventually demolished.
There exists a legend of the White Ladies ghost off these shores:http://americanfolklore.net/folklore/2010/07/the_white_lady.html
