DOT tribute to grass

March 3rd, 2012

Along Northern Boulevard, beneath the BQE overpass, are two abutment walls celebrating all that grass has meant to humans over the years. One wall lists various types of grass used by different societies throughout history, while the other (pictured) contains excerpts from Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass, specifically from the poem Song of Myself, which can be read in its entirety here.
