FHL thanks Borough President Stringer for his recent allocation of $2 million in Capital funding as part of the Borough President's FY '07 Capital Budget. The announcement was made at the April 10 Groundbreaking ceremony. Borough President Stringer said,

"This park shows the amazing things that can be created by the talented, hardworking people of the Borough of Manhattan. We lead the country in many creative fields so it's only appropriate that we should tap two world-renowned landscape and architecture firms, Field Operations and Diller Scofidio + Renfro, both of whom are based in Manhattan, to create a park design that epitomizes the visionary thinking of this City."

On behalf of our thousands of supporters, FHL thanks the Borough President and his staff for providing these much-needed funds to the High Line as construction begins.
