Whenever the board of rapid transit commissioners of a city declares by resolution that certain real estate of the city, acquired for rapid transit purposes and paid for out of rapid transit funds, is not needed for such purposes and is available for boulevard or parkway purposes, such board, by resolution, may determine to use the real estate for boulevard or parkway purposes, and may transfer from any boulevard or parkway funds in the treasury of the city and subject to its control to the board of rapid transit commissioners' fund a sum not in excess of the cost of such real estate. If such real estate was acquired as part of a larger parcel of real estate, the sum so transferred shall not be in excess of the proportion which the cost of such real estate bears to the total cost to the city of the larger parcel of real estate of which it is a part, measured by giving to each square foot of the larger parcel of real estate the same value.
This section does not authorize any such board to transfer from any parkway or boulevard funds subject to its control a total sum in excess of one hundred fifty thousand dollars. All moneys so transferred to the board's funds may be expended for the purchase, construction, improvement, maintenance, equipment, or enjoyment of the city's rapid transit property, as the board directs.
