On The High Line - Exploring New York's Most Original Urban Park (updated and expanded edition)
|Author:||Annik La Farge|
Thirty feet in the air, rebuilt and planted on one-and-a-half miles of abandoned, elevated railroad track snaking through Manhattans West Side, the High Line has turned the dream of escape offered by most urban parks inside out. On the High Line is an engaging, friend-at-your-side guide to everything that a visitor sees when strolling through the park: the innovative gardens and their thousands of plants from around the world; the architecture, both old and new; and a neighbourhood whose lively history includes the Titanic, the Manhattan Project, S&M clubs and the Tenth Avenue Cowboy. This book captures like no other the countless details that make a walk along the High Line such an unforgettable experience.
