The Seating Steps and Lawn will be a central gathering spot when Section 2 opens in the spring.
Crews have finished rolling out the sod on what will be the High Line's first lawn—a 4,900 square foot swath of inviting turf in Section 2.
The Lawn is located between West 22nd and West 23rd Streets, where the High Line opens up to a wider area that once housed an extra track that served a loading deck for the adjacent warehouse.
In recent weeks, the High Line's contractors have installed sod in this central gathering spot. The sod is comprised of a mix of varied grasses that is more tolerant of heavy use, foot traffic, heat, and shade than a typical lawn.
When Section 2 opens in the spring, visitors will find that the Lawn "peels-up" at the northern end, offering an elevated vantage point from which to view the city skyline to the east, and the Hudson River to the west.
