NY1 Discovers Delancey Underground Exhibit on Orchard

Posted on: April 17th, 2012 at 10:18 am by

Fashionably late to the party but with glass in hand, NY1 showed up yesterday morning to film a segment about the over-hyped Delancey Underground. Film truck and crew were parked outside the Mark Miller Gallery just as the sleepy block awoke. Reporter Stephanie Simon interviewed project co-founder James Ramsey and the eponymous gallery owner for the piece. After all, it is here at 92 Orchard Street that the “Low Line” is hosting its month-long exhibition on the project particulars.

Meanwhile, the Kickstarter campaign far exceeded its initial target of $100,000, collecting $155,186 from some 3,000 backers. With this money, co-founders James Ramsey and Dan Barasch will create a mini-Low Line replica sometime in September, which will be on display inside the vacant Essex Market building south of Delancey.

Is it Delancey Underground or Low Line. The organization should make up its mind.
