Joel Sternfeld photographed the High Line over the course of a year in 2000 - 2001. The images he shot of the space before its conversion into a public park show it as it was for many years: overgrown with wild plants; an untamed meadow-like space cutting through Manhattan's West Side. These images were important catalysts in conveying the potential for the space as a public green space, and helped convert many people into supporters of the movement to save it from demolition.
A Railroad Artifact, 30th St, May 2000 is one of Sternfeld's most iconic images of the High Line, the photograph looks east from the High Line at the Rail Yards with a view of the Empire State Building.
