Better know as the Delancey Underground, this new New York environmental project that takes over an abandoned trolley on the lower east side of Manhattan. It would consist of windy pathways, greenery and even a skylight. The idea is just in its infant stage but it sounds really exciting already. Remember the early days of the Highline revival? Although there were tons of naysayers, it was a great idea that gave back to the city.
