Barren landscape


Rolling hills at World's End in Hingham, Mass. In 1945, this 251 acre property was short-listed to be the site of the United Nations headquarters, which ultimately found its home in New York City. Twenty years later it was eyed as a possible site for a nuclear power plant, but thanks to community opposition the site was preserved.
