With a city as densely populated as New York, making space is a difficult task.
A group of architects, engineers, and designers have proposed to construct the Lowline, the world’s first underground park. The project has been a work in progress for the past five years, and would implement James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem’s Subway Symphony project featuring turnstiles playing music. Nancy Whang (also of LCD Soundsystem) has teamed up with the Lowline Labs to narrate a walkthrough of the installment, and noting the positive impact this space could provide for residents and visitors of the Lower East Side community.
