At the northern terminus of Section 2, construction crews recently hoisted a 15-by-35-foot steel frame into place. The frame is a key component of the Viewing Platform, an area where the High Line’s concrete decking has been removed, revealing the steel gridwork of High Line beams and girders.

Section 2 of the High Line is planned to open later this spring.
