In spring, 2011, the second section of the High Line, from West 20th to West 30th Street, will open to the public, doubling the length of the park.
Section 2 has new design features, including the High Line's first lawn, a steel walkway that rises 8 feet above the High Line level, and a wildflower field, among others.
