the lowline

As my lower lip shifts to the left and my eyes swing high right...I'm doing my best in reserving judgement as per the latest bid to replicate the High Line on the Lower East Side. Dubbed "The Lowline", it has the air of a wannabe.
Developers have proposed to retrofit an abandoned underground trolley terminal below Delancey Street into an interior public park (that just seems like an oxymoron). The whole project looks like a Mall of America crush with the Velvet Underground.
