New York City is home to one of the most iconic skylines in the world, but in an area as densely populated as Manhattan, finding space away from the fast-paced metropolis is becoming increasingly difficult.

One project is exploring an innovative solution - an underground park in the abandoned Delancy Street subway station.

The proposed 60,000 square foot public park, based on a pioneering light technology by architects James Ramsey and Dan Barasch, must first gain the approval of more than a dozen city and state planning authorities before it can be implemented.
