delancey underground – high line park inspires low line park

delancey underground – high line park inspires low line park

The Delancey Underground project has an ambitious goal: The group seeks to transform an abandoned trolley terminal forlornly hidden beneath New York City’s Lower East Side, into The Big Apple’s first underground community green space . The massive, decaying space lies beneath one of the least verdant areas of the city. The forgotten unused space is nearly the size of Gramercy Park. The designers envision the utilization of advanced solar technology to channel sunlight underground, enabling plants and trees to grow. The organization, obviously inspired by the overwhelming popularity of the West Side’s High Line Park , is currently seeking donations to move the project into the next phase.
