It seems like it was just yesterday that the Lowline Lab opened, but here we are...and sadly it shutters this weekend!
Just one ultra-successful stepping stone to the future Lowline park (the world's first underground park), the Lab has certainly served its purpose in demonstrating the viability of the greater project. It's shown New Yorkers a true example of what the park might look like and proven that the Lowline's solar technology is fully functional. Plants really can thrive underground en masse (and we're not just talking about roots here, people!)
The Lowline Lab has attracted more than 100,000 visitors of all ages since its opening day and has played host to plenty of cultural events and cool education programming.
Want to see it one last time? RSVP at Lowline's Facebook page here and attend their farewell event on February 25 and 26 11am–5pm at 140 Essex St. Suggested donation is $10.
