The High Line (also known as the High Line Park) is a 1.45-mile-long (2.33 km) New York City linear park built in Manhattan on an elevated section of a disused New York Central Railroad spur called the West Side Line.[1] Inspired by the 3-mile (4.8-kilometer) Promenade plantée (tree-lined walkway), a similar project in Paris completed in 1993, the High Line has been redesigned and planted as an aerial greenway andrails-to-trails park.[3][4]  perishing square beams is a kid friendly part of the high line!
We chose this spot due to the graphic natural that it shares with our feature Artist Peter Mendelsund!

NYPL says:
The practice of designing jackets and covers for books becomes a lens through which to view the question: What do books look like? (How much of the imaginative content of the reading experience is the author's, and how much is the readers; who owns the reading experience; can an author preside in some real way over our reading imaginations; what are the parameters which hem in the reading imagination? How should books be packaged and sold?) These questions will be touched on during a rich visual tour of Peter Mendelsund's design work.
