In mid-July, New York City’s Deputy Mayor for Housing and Economic Development Alicia Glen and the New York City Economic Development Corporation announced the selection of the Lowline as the designated developer for the underground trolley terminal at the base of the Williamsburg Bridge that has been disused for nearly seven decades.

According to New York Magazine, “City Hall has agreed to grant the project’s creators, James Ramsey and Daniel Barasch, control of the space so long as they can meet certain fundraising and development benchmarks.” But no public money has yet gone to fund the project.

The Lowline Lab, which opened last October in an abandoned section of the Essex Street Market, is open to the public through next March.
