Man lived undetected for 9 years in 2-room shack he built near Syracuse’s highways

" Thousands of people everyday in Syracuse passed near a hand-built, two-room shack where a homeless man lived for nine years, and drivers didn't even know he was there."

"The shack is within the city limits where you can hear trucks rumbling past on the interstates. It sits in a wooded area hidden in a swale where water runs through during wet weather."

"The wood structure has a foundation, two doors and a window. It's walls are plumb and the boards fit snugly together keeping out the wind and the rain. The slightly sloping roof is covered with tar paper."

The 355-acre Camillus Forest Unique Area, consisting soley of Camillus Unique Area, was established in March of 1997 with the goal of preserving the land for public enjoyment and education of present and future generations of Central New Yorkers. Collectively, the area is an exceptional and diverse open space resource that provides a multitude of passive recreational use opportunities. The "crown jewel" of the property is a 40-acre forest located in its southwest corner. It is a magnificent old sugar maple and American beech forest that is nearly two centuries old and is one of the finest examples of a mature northern hardwood forest in Central New York. This forest is slowly developing characteristics of an old growth forest. A portion of the forest is truly an ecologically significant and irreplaceable area deserving protection under the State Nature and Historical Preserve Trust (article 45) of the New York State Environmental Conservation Law.
