Delancey Underground: A Subterranean Green Space
The High Line located in New York from the Meatpacking District up to Hell’s Kitchen has been one NYC’s hottest destination spots since its opening of section 1 in 2009. Originally used as an above ground railroad track to transport dangerous freight, the High Line has been transformed into a beautiful green space with breathtaking views of the west side of Manhattan and the Hudson River.
Now, we may have another abandoned train track turned into community green space on our hands. This time, the Delancey Underground will be located in the Lower East Side UNDERGROUND.
This underground playground will serve as a beautiful green Eco-friendly space, which developers have said that the original abandoned track is the size of Gramercy Park. By harvesting sunlight through advanced technology, plants and trees will have proper settings to grow underground. The preliminary pictures for the Delancey Subterranean Green Space are absolutely stunning and scream 2050 so loud, it’s not even funny.
