In support of the Lowline, organizers are planning their third-annual “Anti-Gala” October 8. The fundraiser is being co-hosted this year by “Girls” star Lena Dunham and Academy Award winning director Spike Jonze, a part-time Lower East Side resident. In addition to the main event, there’s an after party in-the-works at the Skylight Modern on West 27th Street. It will feature, among other surprises, a live performance by Bleachers, fun. guitarist Jack Antonoff’s solo project (Antonoff also happens to be Dunham’s boyfriend).
Tickets for the after party start at $200, but the Lowline is offering a discount rate for readers of The Lo-Down. Just go to the event page and enter the code anti-gala-lodown for a $75 ticket.
The Lowline is a proposed park and cultural space that would transform a former trolley station below Delancey Street. The organization is working on gaining access to the site from the MTA. They estimate it will cost around $50 million to build the park, which relies on sunlight channeling technology.
