A special Villager supplement

Above, a possible design scenario for a “floating pond” on the High Line Park at W. 14th St. Construction of the 1.4-mile-long park along the abandoned West Side elevated freight railway — recently acquired by the city — will commence in 2006 on the section from Gansevoort to 14th Sts. Final designs for the $100 million project are still being completed. The first section is slated to open in 2008. At far right, a sign at this summer’s Howl! Festival of East Village Arts. At right, some of the people who are trying to “be the change,”

clockwise from top left, Joseph Pupello of Federation of East Village Artists; Deputy Inspector Theresa Shortell of the Sixth Precinct; Jim Hart of the Greenwich Village-Chelsea Chamber of Commerce; Andrew Berman of the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation; William Stricklin of Village Independent Democrats; Miguel Roldan of A.R.A. Bodega on Stanton St.; Wellington Chen of the Chinatown Partnership; and Elizabeth Ruf-Maldonado of the Save St. Brigid’s Committee and East Village Community Coalition.
