<1>If you're interested in how the shape of New York's counties, including Genesee, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.

<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Corfu - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.

A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Corfu) to Point B.If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Corfu. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from CorfuOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Corfu.
