The Lowline, LES


The Columbia Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation (GSAPP) mounted an exhibit called Experiments in Motion, in partnership with Audi in the Lower East Side, sited in a building at the corner of Delancey and Essex. They imagined a project that reclaimed the abandoned underground trolley yard below Delancey street where the Williamsburg Bridge makes landfall in Manhattan. As you can see above, they proposed an underground park, playing off the success of the Highline in Chelsea, an acclaimed, reclaimed elevated train track. Impressive.
