October 7, 2004 -- The city's unlikeliest new park set on an abandoned elevated railroad line on the far West Side took a step closer to reality yesterday when top city officials announced they were pumping another $27.5 million into the project.

Mayor Bloomberg and City Council Speaker Gifford Miller, possible rivals in next year's mayoral election, were as chummy as could be at a press conference on the unused tracks three stories above 14th Street at Tenth Avenue.

"New York is ultimately about reimagining itself every generation," said Miller, an early champion of the plan to transform the 22-block stretch of rail line into a park in the sky.

City funding for the High Line, as the rail line is known, now totals $43.5 million. Officials said private and other government funds would have to be raised to meet a final construction tab estimated at up to $100 million David Seifman
