Property Tax Going Up?

Don't worry, we've got the High Line coming!

For those who don't know, the High Line Park is a new $200 million city/state funded park which overlooks the new $500 million city/state funded Hudson River Park. Both of which are easily accessible to all of New York. Just take a subway, (which is running local every weekend due to construction) for about an hour and twenty minutes to 14th St/8th Ave. Get out and walk about half a mile. Total travel time each way, about two hours. Then spend the entire day looking down on white people enjoying Hudson River Park down below - and thinking of the two hour local commute home on the hot and filthy subway.

Mayor Bloomberg calls it an important part of the west side development. Something tells me that if Tribeca had to make do with only the Hudson River Park, the West Side would be okay. Just something to think about next time the Mayor says the city is broke (which should be any minute now).
