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
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.
