  • Lowline 
    The High Line, a park that was once the site of elevated train tracks, is one of New York City's newest public-space success stories. And way down on the Lower East Side deep beneath Delancey Street lies an abandoned subway station prepping for its very own face-lift. The Lowline, a proposed two-acre underground park, would be the first of its kind in the nation. Organizers hope to turn the defunct Williamsburg Trolley Terminal below the base of the Williamsburg Bridge into a green space complete with trees, shrubs, a water element and even sunlight from above. What remains of its past, however, would not go entirely dark, as the park would retain such characteristics as crisscrossing tracks, original cobblestones and domed ceilings. After winning the approval of Manhattan Community Board No. 3, things are moving along in the deveopment of the park. Currently, the Low Line Lab on the LES is open to the public through March 2016 showing how the technology to bring light into the space will work. Find out more at—CP
