For those with interest in the public/private land transfer debate, or in the use of lands in the NY Adirondack Park, this will be of interest. Lands originally owned by Finch-Pruyn were sold several years ago to the Nature Conservancy and remained managed forest land. As the lands move into state ownership, if they are within the Adirondack Park boundary (AKA "the blue line") they will become forever wild. This linked article below suggests there are (which I don't doubt) some aesthetically and ecologically unique acres. Other areas would also be well suited for sustained management.
