Looking for empty land in New York or New England (1 Viewer)

I've been stuck in NYC for the last like 4 years in an apartment. I want to go into the woods for awhile and live off the land, somewhere I'm not going to be bothered by landowners or cops/rangers. I want to be able to build stuff and if I have to worry about rangers kicking me off of state property, that's gonna suck. I've considered going on the AT somewhere but I believe that's regularly patrolled and they probably wouldn't like it much if I started building a log cabin lol. I'm not looking to do adverse possession, not yet anyway. I don't have the willpower to stay on undeveloped land for 20 something years.

I'm just looking for like a general area, like maybe a town name or county, on where to look, not an exact location. I'm not looking to step on anybody's toes except whoever owns the land.

Alternatively, if anybody has land they're willing to let me use, I guess that could work too.
We sell all kinds of other stuff in our Etsy store!

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $105.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
