NEW YORK -- TV producer Tom Fontana recently opened the doors of his architecturally dreamy flat in the West Village in support of Friends of the High Line, a nonprofit group intent on transforming an abandoned elevated rail structure on the West Side into a public space.

Cause has become a favorite for celebs, perhaps because many nest near the High Line, which runs from 34th St. down into the meat packing district. Kevin Bacon, Kyra Sedgwick, Amanda Peet, Edward Nortonand Glenn Close will host org's next fund-raiser Dec. 10.

Fontana discovered the High Line 15 years ago, when tried to get rights to shoot a scene for a pilot.

The land, which org needs transferred from railroad to city ownership, will cost $65 million to cultivate with landscaping, walkways and security features.

On hand: Estelle Parsons and Sony Pictures Classics' Dylan Leiner .
