The Lowline Lab, New York City

3.2
#70 of 76 in Parks in New York City
The Lowline seeks to transform an abandoned trolley terminal into New York City's first underground community green space.

Beneath one of the least green areas of the city, the Lower East Side, lies a massive, unused space nearly an acre in size.

This project envisions using an advanced solar technology to channel sunlight underground, enabling plants and trees to grow.

Visit our live technology #LowlineLab at 140 Essex Street, open weekends 11- 5pm.
