On the High Line: A Walk Along America’s Newest Urban Park by Annick La Farge.
The High Line. I’m pleased to say that many customers who come into Market Block Books already know about this spectacular park simply called The High Line. And now there’s a beautiful book to show folks this original urban park in the middle of New York City. Before you make any plans, plan a trip to New York City to see this marvel. The book will give you some wonderful vistas and vantage points you can’t possibly have by walking through this park but then that’s not the point, is it. Walking, seeing, hearing (or in some cases not hearing the city at all) that’s the point of a park. Immersion is what I seek. The High Line was constructed from an elevated railroad track along the west side of Manhattan. I grew up next to railroad tracks most of my life and to see these tracks transformed makes me swell with joy and amazement. No matter where you live, THIS is yet another reason (as if you needed one) to go to New York City. I love the city and now I love it even more!!!
