In the wake of a storm of media coverage over the last month or so, Dan Barasch and James Ramsey are asking for funds to push forward on developing Delancey Underground, their idea to turn an abandoned underground trolley station into “the world’s first subterranean green space in NYC.”

In an appeal sent to supporters yesterday, the pair said: “Help us make sure that this incredible underground space is transformed into a brilliant community park–one that reflects the innovative, creative spirit of the Lower East Side.”

Here’s more:
