As we prepare to move, I have discovered in a dark corner of our
detached (therefore unheated) garage a gallon can of Glidden paint that
we bought almost two years ago but never used because we decided to
paper the walls instead. It has therefore gone through two Long Island
winters without protection from frost. Is it likely to be worth taking
with us to use in our new house or is it now useless?

It takes a fairly hard feeze to ruin the paint, so why not open the can try a
few dabs and see how it works? If it dries OK you've got $10 or so worth of
paint for a new project. Good luck.
I agree. Oil will be fine.
But try latex paint on a board. If it appears "sandy" toss it.
Freezing makes it sandy (not sure why). If it's not sandy, and works
fine and dries, you got a gallon of good paint..
