The New Croton Reservoir is a narrow reservoir in Westchester County, New York, lying approximately 22 miles (35.2 km) north of New York City, for which the reservoir supplies water. It is the collecting point for water from all reservoirs in the Croton Watershed. The original reservoir was called "Croton Lake", and was New York City's first source of water not located in New York City, being completed in 1842 by damming the Croton River, a tributary of the Hudson River. Around the turn of the last century, the City of New York enlarged the reservoir by constructing the New Croton Dam to supply the city with more water. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New Croton Reservoir
The ranking score is used to determine how "popular" a trip or location is. It is calculated based off of a weighted average of the number of reviews and the user ratings. For example, a location with 2 reviews and an average rating of 5 will have a lower "ranking score" than one with 10 reviews and an average rating of 4. This is because even though the first location has a better average rating, it has not been reviewed as much as the second location, so it is not as "popular". In the future we may modify the ranking score to take in additional factors, such as the number of views, comments, and photos.
