Dan Barasch’s PSFK 2015 Update on NYC’s Underground Park
Dan Barasch and his team have been busy improving their technology and proving their ambitious project is feasible
One of New York’s most special features is without a doubt the Highline, the West Side’s 1.5 mile stretch of above-ground railroad repurposed as a wonderful public space. Dan Barasch, one of the speakers at PSFK 2015, was inspired by this space and wanted to emulate it on the opposite side of Manhattan: the Lower East side, one of the most densely inhabited sections of the city with practically no green space. And so the Lowline was incepted.
