And you can get a "I climbed Mt. Washington" sticker for your clock.

The highest accessible peak in the Adirondacks I think would be 
Whiteface at 4,867 ft, though that would be by ski lift and not all the 
way to the top.  The highest point accessible by car in the Northeast 
would be Mt. Washington here in New Hampshire at 6288 ft.  Hmm...
