Community Board No. 4 Votes to Support High Line Reuse

At its last meeting, on April 2, Manhattan Community Board No. 4 voted 28-1 to support FHL's efforts to preserve and reuse the High Line for pedestrian use. The Board's vote was a reflection of the overwhelming community support that has developed for the High Line in recent years. We owe huge thanks to the many dedicated High Line preservationists who attended and spoke at Board meetings in the past year. Their presence and testimony made clear to the Board the breadth and depth of community commitment to the High Line. We also thank the elected officials whose backing was crucial: U.S. Representative Jerrold Nadler, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, New York City Council Speaker Gifford Miller, City Council Member Christine Quinn, Manhattan Borough President C. Virginia Fields, State Senators Thomas Duane and Eric Schneiderman, and State Assemblymembers Richard Gottfried and Deborah Glick.
