FEATURES:
From the wildflower-strewn High Line to Broadway's piazza transformation and the city's flourishing Design and Construction Excellence program, Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg can rightfully claim that he has made New York a more livable, inviting city. But he had help. The four commissioners overseeing parks, planning, transportation, and building design have formed an enlightened fellowship dedicated to thoroughly researched idealism, and wedded to pragmatic execution that is unprecedented in the recent history of the city's bureaucracy. With their PowerPoints and their guidelines, these four preside over the most visible triumphs, and grandest experiments, of the mayor's legacy.
