The abandoned High Line railroad tracks at West 14th Street are seen on October 6, 2004. The old elevated rail, line which was last used in the 1960's, has received a committment of $43 million in city funds for renovation into a park as well as having a contract signed for the master design of the rebuilding. The High Line has also sought permission to enter the rail-banking program, a federal project  to preserved unused and abandoned railroad right of way. (© Richard B. Levine)
