It’s not an urban fantasy. Someone is actually building a leafy underground park below Delancey Street on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. The Lowline is a plan to turn an abandoned trolley terminal into a public green space. The technology of Sunportal that pipes in sunlight beneath the street’s surface invites public to a secret urban jungle.
