From the Daily News:
Manhattan's new celeb-backed park in the sky is getting more security resources than other, more sprawling parks in other boroughs, parks advocates charge.
"It's outrageous," steamed Geoffrey Croft of the nonprofit NYC Park Advocates. "One park is being adequately secured with taxpayer money while the rest of the park system is abandoned."
Croft, and a leader from the union that represents patrol officers and rangers who do educational work, say the resources for the High Line underscore inequities in the park system.
The city has assigned 11 patrol officers and seven other eyes-and-ears workers to the 3-acre High Line. That's compared to 15 patrol officers, 17 rangers and 56 enforcement workers in all of the Bronx, which has thousands of acres of parkland.
Brooklyn has 23 patrol officers and 130 other safety and educational workers, the city says. Queens has 18 patrol officers and 121 other workers. Staten Island has 13 patrol officers and 57 other workers and Manhattan's total, including the High Line, is 43 patrol officers and 153 others.
Interesting considering that the Bronx is home to the largest park in the City.
