The bar has been set uncommonly high with the completion of 'the High Line' in July, according to reporter Tom Forster, but no one knows how New Yorkers will react to the idea of 'the Low Line.'
James Ramsey, architect and co-founder of the project, plans to use the Williamsburg Bridge railway terminal under Delancey Street which was abandoned in 1948. Ramsey has mentioned that the use of fibre optic cables is how he plans to channel sunlight throughout the park.
The Delancey Underground is certainly more audacious than the High Line, but is it practical? "It's a totally bizarre, fun idea but I think it makes a lot of natural sense", Ramsay insists.
