Have you heard of the Lowline? The Lowline will be the world's first underground park in the heart of lower Manhattan. A fundraiser for the Lowline Project was held at the Water Mill home of Julia Hornig, who shared hosting duties with Mo Koyfman, Hilary Rosenman, Ariane Goldman, and Marquise Stillwell.
The Lowline is a proposed project that aims to convert an abandoned trolley terminal beneath Delancey Street into an extraordinary subterranean public park. Co-founded by Dan Barasch and James Ramsey, the Lowline will bring cutting edge design and a new generation of green technology to create a innovative new public space for generations to enjoy. The project envisions a fresh approach to solar technology, allowing light to be reflected underground, saving electricity, reducing carbon emissions, and generating the capacity for plants, trees, and grasses to thrive indoors. The Lowline is part of the next phase in urban design, using more creative use of public spaces.
