Beneath the streets of Buffalo’s East Side there is a buried waterway that stretches for miles unseen.

Adirondack Almanack: Indentifying Adirondack First Growth Forests The Adirondacks are home to the largest known contiguous tract of unlogged forest in the Northeast. Located in the Southern part of Five Ponds Wilderness Area (Herkimer and Hamilton Counties), estimates of this patch of ancient forest range from 42,000 to 50,000 acres.
