Críticas:

Plenty of fascinating historical anecdotes. " Great . . . I thought there wasn't much I did not know about the High Line but I learned so much about the history and the neighborhood. People are going to love it.--Robert Hammond, co-founder, Friends of the High Line Fascinating. . . . A must for anyone who plans to visit the High Line. Plenty of fascinating historical anecdotes. [Annik LaFarge s] book, with its plentiful facts and photographs and 3-foot-long foldout map, is the perfect guide to take . . ." Lafarge s revised edition incorporates many changes, large and small, including those wrought by Hurricane Sandy." The High Line is a unique elevated celebration of nature and the city and this book shows all aspects of this brilliant project captured in spectacular photographs.--Lynden B. Miller, public garden designer, The Conservatory Garden, NYC, and author of Parks, Plants and People This book captures the experience of the High Line, setting it in historical and cultural context, and illustrating how a city can meld its industrial heritage into a vibrant new landscape that can be enjoyed by millions.--Piet Oudolf, landscape designer, the High Line Rails to trails! Dead tech repurposed beautiful, and insanely popular. FDR Drive, you're next!--David Byrne, musician, artist" A book that will give pleasure and respite to all who love New York City but wish it were somehow quieter, prettier, more conducive to contemplation without electronic devices buzzing from all sides. The photographs spectacularly capture the vibrance and beauty of the High Line for the many different things that it is, which includes being a lightning rod for other artistic visions. With hundreds of photos spanning the years before, during and after the site's construction, the book lends context to the reclaimed urban space that has become one of the city's most popular attractions. Engrossing. . . . Bursting with insights on history, botany, geography, architecture, and the arts, La Farge takes readers on a tour of the park from the 'Slow Stairs' at the southern end to the Tenth Avenue Spur. Gorgeous full-color photographs enhance the view on nearly every page. A marvelous guidebook for visitors and readers interested in New York City history or urban planning. Reading this revised edition of the 2012 guide will make the casual tourist, and perhaps even an oblivious Manhattanite, seek out a section of the park (or maybe even the entire route) for a stroll. . . . The prize goes to the volume's photographs. . . .Recommended for those living in or planning to visit New York City. [Annik LaFarge's] book, with its plentiful facts and photographs and 3-foot-long foldout map, is the perfect guide to take . . . Packed with photos expressing exactly how much the High Line Park has contributed to city life...the book captures exactly the delightful design and planting [and] the spirit of each little section of the park...It has the gentle reader reaching for the internet to start looking for plane tickets. Lafarge's revised edition incorporates many changes, large and small, including those wrought by Hurricane Sandy. LaFarge 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. Rails to trails! Dead tech repurposed--beautiful, and insanely popular. FDR Drive, you're next!--David Byrne, musician, artist

Reseña del editor:

Thirty feet in the air, rebuilt and planted on one-and-a-half miles of abandoned, elevated railroad track snaking through Manhattan’s 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.
