Metro Briefing | New York: Manhattan: Millions Set For Public Space

By David W. Dunlap (NYT); Compiled by Anthony Ramirez

Gifford Miller, the City Council speaker, said yesterday that New York was committed to spending $15.75 million over the next four years to turn the High Line, an abandoned railroad viaduct that runs for 1.5 miles through the far West Side of Manhattan, into a park or public space. ''We hope this will serve as a catalyst,'' Mr. Miller said, attracting federal, state and private money needed for rehabilitation. His announcement was timed to coincide with the opening today at Grand Central Terminal of an exhibition displaying design ideas from a competition sponsored by the nonprofit Friends of the High Line.
