The High Line

$75.00

description

This stunning history in images takes you inside the planning, construction, and unforeseen influence of the High Line. From its days as an elevated freight rail (back when people actually packed meat in the Meatpacking District!), to the long-abandoned tracks, to its rebirth as one of New York City’s most celebrated public spaces, this coffee table book tells the tale of the re-purposed park through hundreds of photographs, original documents, and media clippings.

Featuring interviews with the designers who brought their vision of a “surreal urban meadow” to life, and previously unpublished materials such as the original proposal drawings, this is THE book for design enthusiasts including architects, landscape designers, and urban planners…as well as for High Line-lovers of every stripe.
