This is literally the “inside story” of how the High Line happened, told by Friends of the High Line co-founders Joshua David and Robert Hammond and illustrated by more than 200 photographs documenting the transformation.
"The High Line is not only a great work of design… it is also a great saga. In this book Robert Hammond and Joshua David tell with energy, passion, and refreshing candor the story of how this industrial artifact became, against all odds, a magnificent park."
- Paul Goldberger, Pulitzer Prize-winning architecture critic
