The city is considering taking ownership of the northern portion of the High Line, according to NY 1 News
Currently, the city already owns the portion south of 30th Street. That part of the elevated rail yard has been transformed into a public park.
The Department of City Planning is now starting the public review process necessary for the city to take ownership of the entire length of the High Line, which extends to the West Side Rail Yards.
Advocacy group Friends of the High Line says the move would guarantee the preservation of the park in the future.
