Recap: DayLife at the Lowline Exhibit
This past weekend was the closing of “Imagining the Lowline,” an exhibit in the “old” Essex Street Market building where Dan Barasch and James Ramsey, founders of the Lowline, constructed a full scale section of their vision for an underground park below Delancey Street.
For the past two Sundays, “DayLife,” a pop-up festival of local vendors, was holding court indoors alongside the Lowline prototype’s Japanese Bloodgood Maple tree and other low-light greenery. It was essentially an early preview of what we might expect if the project is ultimately seen to conclusion.
Popping over there for the last day of the festivities, we noticed that the place smelled incredible, thanks to neighborhood foodie carts such as the Meatball Shop, Melt, Tache Artisan Chocolate, Lost Weekend and Pop Karma (and yes, the heavy mulch smell that we noticed on opening day had long since dissipated).
Café tables were set up, and the crowd was enjoying sitting, chatting, chewing and viewing the installation.
