Sneak Peek at the World's First Underground Park - The Lowline

Sneak Peek at the World's First Underground Park - The Lowline

A 1,200 square-meter "test lab" of what aims to be the world's first underground park has opened its doors to New Yorkers. View a sneak peek above, shared with ArchDaily by The Spaces, to see just how the Lowline (as the project's known) plans to "plumb" sunlight into an abandoned trolley terminal beneath the city's Delancey Street in an attempt to transform the forgotten space into a sun-lit, subterranean public garden. 

You can also read The Lowdown on the Lowline by journalist Vanessa Quirk to learn more about the ambitious project.
