High Line Rail Lifting Ceremony
 
Mayor Bloomberg and Friends of the High Line (FHL) Co-Founders Robert Hammond and Joshua David today hosted a unique groundbreaking ceremony on top of the High Line elevated rail structure, heralding the start of construction of the first phase of New York City's eagerly anticipated park.  To mark the occasion, the City's contractors lifted one of the few remaining railroad tracks in the first section of the 1.5-mile-long High Line to be converted to park use.  This first section of the park will run from Gansevoort Street to West 20th Street, and is projected to open in Spring 2008.
