    What I heard was that the Harrimans, who donated the land for Harriman State Park in Island Park specified that the state had to have a functioning state parks agency in order to recieve the land parcel. OOPS!

    Which means that the state can’t keep the property unless they maintain a parks department (agency). So that was a nonstarter before Otter even hatched the idea from his pea-sized brain.

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
