The 1903, unused, and long neglected Delancey Street subway station of New York City is getting a light-lift. Located in the heart of New York’s Lower East Side, this proposed park takes NYC High Line park to a whole new level, the lower level through the development of an underground park system. Using NASA crafted fiber-optic tubes, this subway tunnel will infiltrate natural light in an exciting futuristic way. Trees and vegetation will fill the once tiled floors of the subway corridor, creating spaces for the Lower East Side community to gather and play.
“It’s the kind of space that childhood daydreams are made of.”
Designers and founders, Dan Barasch and James Ramsey, have long let this idea live in their minds. Finally this 1.5 acre “Low Line”, an underground urban park, is underway. Log-on to Kickstart and be a part of making NYC Lower East Side a place to be.
