Google gives $1M donation for Manhattan's Highline park
Good neighbor Google.
The Internet company, which has offices in the Chelsea Market, has donated $1 million to the High Line park.
Robert Hammond, co-founder and President of Friends of the High Line, said: "We are grateful to Google. It's wonderful to have a business in the neighborhood contribute to something so many people enjoy."
He said the city park on a section of the former elevated freight railroad spur called the West Side Line in the Meatpacking District has drawn 3 million visitors since it opened in June 2009
