Without further ado: the long-awaited Section 2 of the High Line has an official opening date, and that date, according to the latest Friends of the High Line e-mail blast, is Wednesday, June 8. For those without a calendar in reach, that's a week from tomorrow! Excuse us while we go press the exclamation mark key a few more times. We've already gotten sneak peeks at a few of the new phase's features, including the 30th Street Cut-Out, the seating steps, and the Lawn at 23rd Street. Then there are the old renderings of the rest, which we suppose can tide us over a few more days.
