New York city officials have approved measures for an underground park project called Lowline.

Lowline will use solar technology to cultivate a green space that will be a source of education, culture and general resource for the public. The park will transform the abandoned space of the Williamsburg Bridge Trolley Terminal; project leaders hope that if approved, the space will become a model for future adaptive reuse of abandoned space.
