The High Line

The City Council’s subcommittee on landmarks, public siting and
maritime uses voted unanimously yesterday in favor of acquiring the
last piece of the High Line for development of the northernmost section
of the elevated park. The section runs between 30th and 34th streets
and 10th and 12th avenues and represents one third of the historic
railroad. The acquisition plan is set for review today by the Land Use
Committee before a scheduled full City Council vote Thursday. “The High
Line has proven to be a successful way to expand open space in
neighborhoods starved for parks,” said City Council speaker Christine
Quinn, following the vote. “There has been an enormous amount of public
and private investment in this area including the development of the
No. 7 Line and the renovation and expansion of Moynihan Station. I
strongly believe the expansion of the High Line would play an important
role in further opening the West Side to new opportunities for
residents and businesses.” TRD
