LONG LAKE, N.Y. (AP) - A 36,000-acre tract of lakes and forest in the Adirondacks is on the market for $180 million.
The tract known as Whitney Park was owned by Saratoga Springs philanthropist and thoroughbred racing owner Marylou Whitney. She died last year. Her widower, John Hendrickson, told the Wall Street Journal he plans to sell the estate that includes the great camp Deerlands near Long Lake.
The property has been listed as a state acquisition priority for 50 years. A Department of Environmental Conservation spokesperson said the agency will work with the family if they reach out with any interest of selling to the state.
