NY mulls over Adirondack Park land classification

Posted: Updated:
NORTH CREEK, N.Y. -

The state of New York recently purchased its largest chunk of forestland in the Adirondack Park, formerly known as the Finch-Pruyn.

The land was bought from the Nature Conservancy and now the debate turns to how the state will classify this property.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo is meeting with local and state lawmakers to discuss their options. If they chose a "wilderness" classification, no cars or bikes will be allowed in this area. Cuomo says it will be a judgment call that requires balance.
