    New York's Greenacre Park is a tiny oasis in one of the world's biggest concrete jungles.

    It now finds itself overshadowed by the city's skyscrapers, fighting to get some sunlight.

    If approved, a re-zoning plan near the park would allow building of skyscrapers that would cast giant shadows over the park, making it another sunless dark spot in the city.

    Al Jazeera’s Gabriel Elizondo reports from New York.
