Grass Returns to Bryant Park

Yesterday we welcomed the appearance of one of the surest signs of spring--the lawn!
As in previous years, green ribbons of sod were rolled out across the lawn. It took 26 workers 10 hours to complete the dramatic transformation. The sod is comprised of ten percent Kentucky Bluegrass and ninety percent fescue, and comes from a sod farm in New Jersey.
77 pallets of sod await roll-out--46,200 square feet in total! 

The view from above. The discolorations between strips of sod will fade as roots intertwine.

Opening for lazy days and bare feet in the first two weeks of May.


  1. A sure sign of spring in NYC if ever there was one. Can't wait to see the list of movies for this year's HBO film festival!

  2. What sod farm in NJ do you use?

    1. Hi, Jay: the farm is Tuckahoe Turf Farms in Hammonton, NJ.
