Barren Square Preps for Ice Rink

The grassy area at Pershing Square is largely grass-less at the moment.

Pershing Square has never been a paradise of greenery, but the park looks a little extra empty at present. The grass has been killed, intentionally, to make way for the upcoming ice rink, arriving in mid-November.

Why kill the grass? Otherwise it dies and rots underneath the rink, which leads to bugs and unpleasant odors. Killing it in advance doesn't look great, but it seems better than that alternative.

The ice rink, an annual feature, runs from mid-November to mid-January.
