‘The Lowline’ New York’s Underground Park.

An abandoned trolley Terminal below Delanceystreet,NYC  dating back the 1900’s is the location for New York’s newest Urban Green Adventure.

After the succes of ‘The Highline’ this is another great project and again something completely new, the Trolley Station is not the most obvious place for creating an Urban-Park.

The great challenge is to create light for the plants without using energy , a never before used solar-system brings in the light directly from Delanceystreet. A year ago the first drawings where made and  now New Yorkers can get their first peek at the technology required to construct a proposed park in an underground abandoned trolley station.
