Featuring Open House with Delancey Underground Co-Founders James Ramsey and Dan Barasch on Sunday, April 1.

Is New York City’s next park underground? Two leaders from the Lower East Side, Designer James Ramsey and social entrepreneur Dan Barasch, have developed a plan to build the “LowLine,” a cutting edge new green space in an abandoned trolley terminal beneath Delancey Street, on the Lower East Side. This special month-long exhibition will provide an opportunity to learn more about the solar technology enabling a subterranean park, preview initial designs, and envision the potential uses of a community-based public space in the 21st century.

To open the exhibit, Delancey Underground Co-Founders James Ramsey and Dan Barasch will be presentat the Opening on Sunday, April 1, to directly engage the community on this ambitious project.

The exhibit will include a life-size rendering of how the park could look and feel, as well as a 3D model of the proposed park. Images of the current location as well as architectural renderings of its potential future will be available for viewing and for purchase.
