After the park, I ventured out on the point where there is a modern lighthouse at the junction of the Genesee River going out to Lake Ontario.  You can still see the ice floats in the water and the very thick layer of ice on the pier.  The ice here was about 10″ to 12″ thick and sloped towards the water.  As you got closer to the lighthouse it got taller and taller and finally at the base was over 4 feet thick and higher than the handrails.

Note the icicles on the metal handrails. They were more like curved daggers:
