This week's issue of Chelsea Now features an editorial making the case for preserving the entire High Line at the rail yards. The Villager also ran the editorial.

The piece focuses on the High Line's ability to add value to the site by increasing the value of the surrounding real estate, drawing tourists to the area, serving as an invaluable connector to three West Side neighborhoods, and lending some historic context to the site.

Friends of the High Line is developing a series of principles for the treatment of the High Line at the rail yards. We strongly urge the MTA to make the following principles a requirement for the selected rail yards developer.  The developers' proposals demonstrate that all of these principles are feasible.  We look forward to working with the selected developer to incorporate these principles in the final development of the site.
