Caption: On Feb. 8, construction crews hoisted a 5.7-ton steel platform on the High Line at 30th Street between 10th and 11th avenues in New York City. This feature of the High Line is called the 30th Street Cut-Out and is one of the key features of Section 2, which is scheduled to open this spring. The 15-by-35-ft platform will be covered in transparent stainless steel gratings and framed with laminated glass guardrails, which will expose the High Lines structural beams as well as the street below. The 30th Street Cut-Out is situated at the point where the High Line turns west and offers views of the Hudson River, the Empire State Building and the High Line at the Rail Yards.
