  • The Adirondack Park

    The Adirondack Park was created in 1882 by the NY State Legislature and includes

    over 6.1 million acres of public and private land.

    The Park is part of the Canadian Shield which are an older formation underlying half of

    Canada. Rocks making up the Adirondacks are about 1 billion years old.

    The Adirondacks is home to over 130,000 New Yorkers with 105 towns and villages.

    It is the most unusual park in the US with its untouched forest, thousands of ponds

    and lakes, wilderness trails and spectacular mountains!

    The Adirondacks

    were originally

    claimed by two

    Indian nations, the

    Iroquois and the


    The name

    Adirondacks is still challenged to-

    day; with some say

    it is an authentic

    Indian word used by

    the Iroquois who

    referred to the

    Algonquin's who

    were forced to live

    off tree buds and

    bark during hard

    winters. Other

    historians say it was

    derived from a tribe

    of the St Lawrence

    back in the 1500s and meant They of the Great Rocks.

    Trees or rocks, come visit for yourself. You are sure to have a wonderful time

    with our quaint villages and vast wilderness.

  • A survey done by the Na-

    tional Association of Real-

    tors of 6,000 homeown-

    ers and 2,000 renters re-

    veal several important

    answers: Pride in owning: Most people buy

    homes to have control over where

    they live and enjoy. Although invest-

    ment features are important, the psychological reasons for buyingthe satisfaction of owning and freedom from paying rent .

    Perhaps the largest ever of attitudes toward home

    ownership showed that 75% of owners and 66% of renters

    considered pride of ownership an important reason for


    Good investment: 76% of owners and 69% of renters said the investment aspect of ownership was important.

    Make home a reflection of you: Also an important reason mentioned by more than 6 in 10 owners and renters was an owners ability to control and modify a homes features.

    Long-term appreciation: People considered home ownership a good invest-ment because they view it as a long-term investment. Historically, home

    prices have risen at relatively steady rates. Making the home a reflection of

    oneself was an important reason mentioned by more than 6 in 10 owners and


    Settling down: More than 6 in 10 renters said settling down was an impor-tant reason to buy.

    Leverage investment: people borrow a great deal to buy a home, yet they receive the full benefits of price appreciation.

    Source of savings: home ownership always has and continues to comprise the single largest source of savings for American households.

    Sacrifices are worth it: Almost 7 in 10 renters in the NAR home ownership survey said they planned to buy a home in the future. More than three-

    quarters of these people said they are willing to sacrifice to do that. Page 3
