Saturday 9/22: Exploring the Lowline

Image

 

Please join us for a special visit to the Lowline Exhibit – “Imagining the Lowline: A First Glimpse of a Future Underground” – this Saturday, September 22nd.  The site of the proposed park – the former Williamsburg Trolley Terminal – was originally opened in 1903 and was in service until 1948 when street car service was discontinued. Despite six decades of neglect, the space still retains some incredible features including remnant cobblestones, crisscrossing rail tracks and vaulted ceilings. The Lowline team has been working on repurposing this site into a groundbreaking new public space that would help provide a much needed cultural and social amenity to the Lower East Side.
The Lowline Exhibit features a full-sized, working installation of a portion of the proposed Lowline park.
 
Staci Haber (MUP ’14) is leading the UPSA group on this independent, self-guided tour of the exhibit. We will also have the opportunity to explore the Lower East Side Business Improvement District’s “Day Life” street fair afterwards, featuring local restaurants and businesses.
When: Saturday, September 22nd from 1pm to 2:30pm
Where: Essex Street Warehouse, Entrance on Essex and Broome Streets
RSVP Requested: RSVP here
We look forward to seeing you there!
