The first-hand, behind-the-scenes account of the creative inspiration behind the High Line, the transformative public 'park in the sky' that has reshaped global perceptions of urban space ? and become one of the most beloved and visited destinations in New York City.

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.
THE book for design enthusiasts including architects, landscape designers and urban planners - as well as for general-interest lovers of New York City, culture, art, gardens, and city life.
"the world?s most innovative park" ?Mayor Bloomberg on the High Line
"The High Line serves up the Big Apple on a platter 30 feet high" ? Washington Post on the High Line
"What?s really unexpected about the park is the degree to which it alters your perspective on the city. Guiding you through a secret landscape of derelict buildings, narrow urban canyons and river views, it allows you to make entirely new visual connections between different parts of Manhattan while maintaining a remarkably intimate relationship with the surrounding streets" ? The New York Times on the High Line
