The appellate court ruling that allows the city to demolish remnants of the High Line apparently means, if we're reading the Post correctly, good things for Mayor Bloomberg's vision of turning the High Line into a park. The Post writes, "The state Appellate Division overturned [an earlier City Council court win, allowing it prevent Mayor Giuliani to demolish the elevated train tracks] yesterday, essentially finding the city has the power to alter its share of the site without interference from the council." Uh, Gothamist guesses that's good. Our POV is as long as the Highline becomes something the public can enjoy, we're happy.

Gothamist on the Highline, including how to get there.
