    Great article. I have a much better understanding on how the Adirondack Park was pieced together and much admiration for the work accomplished by Peter Paine. However, I was a little confused with the paragraph on comparison of sizes of land (in acres) of NYS; and land trusts in the Adirondacks, NYS, and around the world. It would have been helpful to mention the acreage (or percent) of land trusts in the Adirondacks since acres were the units mentioned for the other domains (comparing apples with apples).

    Ditto; “Great article. I have a much better understanding on how the Adirondack Park was pieced together and much admiration for the work accomplished by Peter Paine.” and others.
    So far ahead of their time and so much of it would not have happened in later years due to pressure of development.
