The Lowline is an innovative city project that uses solar technology to illuminate a historic Williamsburg Bridge Trolley Terminal beneath the streets of NYC. Eventually, the Lowline will be developed into an underground park capable of becoming home to trees, plants and the work of talented architects and engineers; it's projected to fully open in 2020.

Currently, the Lowline Lab is open to the public and serves as an education and community space.

It's a cool thing to stop by and see if you're in the area, but I wouldn't go out of my way to see it. The Lowline remains  a conceptual project, and the actual structure that exists is one room of panels and plants (you can take it all in/take photos etc. in less than 10 minutes.) There's also a hallway and some history on the project and how it works. Super cool concept but is just that at the moment.
