Work on the High Line's Section 1 in Fall 2008 included perennial planting, steel removal on a special feature called the 10th Avenue Square, and delivery of trees to the Gansevoort Woodland. The first section of the High Line is projected to open in the late spring of 2009.
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.
