The co-founder of the new urban enclave discusses why people are fascinated by the idea of an underground park.

As part of the run-up to PSFK CONFERENCE 2013 in New York this April, PSFK will be publishing a series of short interviews with speakers to give a taste of what will be discussed in this meeting of creative minds. Dan Barasch is the co-founder of The Lowline, an underground park on New York's Lower East Side.  He spoke to PSFK about the project and how transforming hidden urban spaces can change the attitude of a city.

You will be speaking about The Lowline at a conference April 12. What inspired you to create it?
