Highline: The Inside Story of New York’s Park in the Sky

A Book Talk with Josh David

The High Line, a new public park atop a disused elevated freight rail structure, is one of our time’s most innovative urban reclamation projects. Josh David, co-founder of Friends of the High Line and co-author of the new book High Line: The Inside Story of New York City’s Park in the Sky, will share the remarkable story of the park’s success. David will discuss how he and his partner, two young citizens with no prior experience in planning and development, collaborated with their neighbors, elected officials, artists, local business owners, and leaders of burgeoning movements in horticulture and landscape architecture to create a park celebrated worldwide as a model of creatively designed, socially vibrant, and ecologically sound public space. High Line: The Inside Story will be available for sale and signing.
