Part-public park, part-mad scientist experiment, The Lowline in the Lower East Side of New York City hopes to bring natural sunlight and gardens indoors and underground. Using mirrors, lenses and aluminum in a formerly abandoned building, co-founders James Ramsey and Dan Barasch Dan hope to turn their 1,000-square foot experiment into a 60,000-square foot public park and garden open to the public.

You can read more about the park's plans at their website: thelowline.org
