High Line Update: 30th Street Cut-out

I just got my latest email from the High Line folks, and there were some photos of what's happening in Section 2. It looks very exciting. Above is a photo of a construction worker cutting through the concrete for the 30th Street Cut-out. Below is a rendering of what its going to look like. Here's what the High Line folks have to say about it:

Construction on the second section of the park, from 20th Street to 30th Street, is progressing on schedule, with planting set to begin this summer...The removal of the concrete [in the 30th Street Cut-out] will expose the High Line's steel framework, while an elevated viewing platform will bring visitors in close contact with the steel beams.
