NEW YORK'S NEW EDGE: CONTEMPORARY ART, THE HIGH LINE AND URBAN MEGAPROJECTS ON THE FAR WEST SIDE. David Halle and Elisabeth Tiso. University of Chicago Press, 2014. 472 pp. with 70 ills. 24 x 16 cm. LC 2013-48753 ISBN 9780226032405 In English.
Publisher's description: The story of New York's west side no longer stars the Sharks and the Jets. Instead it's a story of urban transformation, cultural shifts, and an expanding contemporary art scene. The Chelsea Gallery District has become New York's most dominant neighborhood for contemporary art, and the streets of the west side are filled with gallery owners, art collectors, and tourists. Developments like the High Line, historical preservation projects like the Gansevoort Market, the Chelsea galleries, and plans for megaprojects like the Hudson Yards Development have redefined what is now being called the Far West Side of Manhattan. David Halle and Elisabeth Tiso offer a deep analysis of the transforming district in New York's New Edge, and the result is a new understanding of how we perceive and interpret culture and the city in New York's gallery district.
