Hundreds of illustrations showcase every aspect of the project and its unforeseen influence in its entirety.

The book mirrors the architecture and composition of the park through its large landscape format with foldouts, surprising packaging and inserts.

Detailed, obsessive, quirky, compelling, and beautiful, the book captures the essence of the High Line.
