- The Lowlinehas already raised over $100,000 from over 1,000 backers, promising to turn an old trolley station in Manhattan into the Earth’s first underground park.

- Built over a century ago but abandoned for over 50 years, this 40,000-square-foot Williamsburg Bridge Trolley Terminal is in remarkably good shape despite years of neglect.
