A beautiful natural space till someone decided this was a perfect spot to destroy.

The Ammerman campus at Selden opened in 1961. It is the largest, first, and main campus of Suffolk County Community College. Located off of Nicolls Road, it has become a landmark of Suffolk County. The main campus is the home to the majority of the sports teams as well. The site was previously a tuberculosis sanitarium.

Only two of the sanitorium's buildings remain (both of which were built by the Works Progress Administration in the 1930s—Ammerman Building (the former William Hugh Ross Building for male patients) and Kreiling Hall (the former J.H. Marshall Building for children). School officials deny a persistent rumor that the basement of the Kreiling Hall was used as a morgue noting that the walk in refrigerators there were used for a cafeteria

As of 2008 only three of the 10,000 Norway spruce and Scotch pine trees that landscaped the sanitarium's grounds remain.

“I felt like lying down by the side of the trail and remembering it all. The woods do that to you, they always look familiar, long lost, like the face of a long-dead relative, like an old dream, like a piece of forgotten song drifting across the water, most of all like golden eternities of past childhood or past manhood and all the living and the dying and the heartbreak that went on a million years ago and the clouds as they pass overhead seem to testify (by their own lonesome familiarity) to this feeling.”

Suffolk County Community College officials have quietly asked the county to turn over 62 acres to substantially increase the size of their largest campus in Selden so it can develop a high-tech center just northeast of existing school grounds.
The college first approached Bellone administration officials and local legislators in the past six weeks about a possible transfer, which would increase the size of the 156-acre Selden campus by more than one-third.
Looks like it's all woods next door. Come on... Can't they preserve the space and use one of the many corporate parks we have as tax free zones.

Too late they are clearing the woods to make way for another building. College Road is going to be a disaster.
