Underground eco-park in NYC

The Delancey Underground - the former trolley terminal could be transformed into a unique underground park

Most New Yorkers have no idea that they may be walking above long-forgotten underground tunnels and railways, relics of the horse-drawn trolleys and electrified cars of the early 20th century. There are at least 13 acres of unused tunnels throughout the five boroughs, many of them unsafe and unusable.

One such site is located underneath the Lower East Side (LES), and could soon become an unlikely green sanctuary.
