New York City Officials Just Approved Plans For ‘The Lowline’ – The World’s First Underground Park

New York city officials just approved plans for “The Lowline” – the world’s first underground park. Founded by James Ramsey and Dan Barasch, The Lowline will use advanced solar technology and special mirrors to beam in sunlight. Trees, plants, and flowers will all grow naturally, and the entire underground site will use no electricity during the day.

The proposed location in Manhattan’s Lower East Side is inside an abandoned trolley station which has been closed since 1948. The Underground Oasis and Green Tech has one year to secure funding, reportedly at least 10 million dollars. If all goes well, The Lowline will be open to the public by 2020.
