Book Talk: at the Center for Architecture

EnlargeHigh Line Talk

Friends of the High Line Co-Founder Joshua David gives a talk, takes questions, and signs copies of the new book, High Line: The Inside Story of New York City’s Park in the Sky.

The High Line, a new public park atop an abandoned, elevated rail line on Manhattan’s West Side, is among the most innovative urban reclamation projects in memory. Joshua David, Co-Founder of Friends of the High Line, will share the story of its creation. A remarkable community collaboration: neighbors, elected officials, artists, local business owners, and leaders of burgeoning movements in horticulture and landscape architecture came together to create a park celebrated worldwide as a model for creatively designed, socially vibrant, and ecologically sound public space.
