High Line, museum and NYU want stimulus money

March 27, 2009 08:25AM

Friends of the High Line has put in a $4.25 million request for federal stimulus funding, which would cover costs of an elevator and stairway entrance to the High Line and two viewing areas in the first and second sections of the project. FHL said it would have applied for funding for the last section of the High Line, but the stimulus plan wouldn’t cover a project not likely to break ground in coming months. The Lower East Side Tenement Museum is seeking $2 million for the renovation of its new building at 103 Orchard Street, between Delancey and Broome streets. New York University is also asking for federal funds, and is proposing $650 million in modernization projects including greening, energy efficiency and fire safety plans.
