Book Description

7 April 2014
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.

Product Description

Review

An engaging guide to everything a visitor will see ... a sumptuous volume, small enough to carry in your bag when exploring the park, and a handsome addition to the coffee table for armchair travellers. --The Garden Design Journal

A wonderful guide to what has quickly become a popular institution. --Geographical

I wish [the book] had been available when I was last there ... La Farge gives a good account of the campaign to save and transform the High Line and along the way - quite literally - she drip-feeds us with a torrent of informative snippets, both generally municipal and specifically horticultural. --Hortus

5.0 out of 5 stars On the High Line Adventure 11 May 2014
By georgie
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My husband and I visited High Line April 2013 where we celebrated our 65th birthdays, it is an amazing venture and the two guys who started the ball rolling are amazing to have followed their dream particularly when they did not even know each other in the beginning but soon did and the rest is history. To enjoy this book you have to visit the Highline to understand how it has evolved there account of all their adventures stresses is lovely and reading it took us both back to our mile and half walk in springtime in New York. We hope to go back 2015 when hopefully The Highline is completed we can't wait. Thank you Josh and Robert for completing your dream and everyone who financed it regards Gina and David Gregory Cardiff Wales

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It is a very good thing that this book has been reissued in an updated version to include new developments on The High Line. The preface by Rick Darke, a renowned plantsman, is excellent especially for those whose main interest is the use of plants. Excellent pictures throughout.

The pictures are great, the typeface is often white and kind of small.
