This engaging book offers background on everything you’ll see when strolling through the beloved “park in the sky,” including the innovative gardens and the architecture. It also offers the colorful history of the surrounding neighborhood, including the birth of the railroad, the Manhattan Project, S&M clubs, and the legendary Tenth Avenue Cowboy.
This edition has been updated to reflect the many changes in the neighborhood since it was first published. It also includes sixteen new pages devoted to the northernmost section of the High Line: the Rail Yards, which opened in 2014, and which offers stunning vistas of the Hudson River and a landscape that mimics the original, self-seeded wilderness that used to thrive on the tracks.
Softcover, 230 pages. Approximately 11 x 6 inches. Revised edition published 2014.
