It’s a done deal, almost. The guys who started a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to build a solar underground park in NYC hit its goal of $200,000 from 2,000 backers.
The money will be used to channel solar energy underground. James Ramsey, a co-founder and creator of the Lowline Lab and former NASA satellite engineer, developed a remote skylight that will be vital in the construction of the underground park.
If all goes according to plan, an acre of land underneath the Lower East Side will become a green park between 2018-2020.
