Lake Placid, N.Y. If the United States has a winter sports capital, it is this hilly village 40 miles from the Canadian border and site of two Winter Olympics. And if this capital has its 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., it is 218 Main St., across from the shore of Mirror Lake, where the Olympic Center skating rink is located, where the "Miracle on Ice" gold medal victory of the U.S. men's hockey team in the 1980 Games took place, where the Winter Olympics Museum Lake Placid displays the community's proud photographs and artifacts from 1932 and '80.
