City officially acquires High Line viaduct

Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced today that the city acquired this month the title to the High Line elevated rail viaduct from CSX Transportation. The transfer of title CSX donated the High Line to the city clears the way for the run-down viaduct’s transformation into a new public park running from Gansevoort Street to the Hudson Yards. The first section of the High Line park is expected to open in 2008, just in time to become a nearby amenity for various new developments in West Chelsea.
