Comment: .. This little pond, on Beaver Dam Road, Brookhaven, NY, is what is known as a "kettle," a depression whose surface is at the groundwater-table, originally formed by melting ice of a receding glacier. Its height varies with the water-table. In earlier generations, it was a popular place for ice skating, as it tended to freeze before the canals at Squassux Landing.
