The Low Line

Your intrepid reporter missed this one.  Comes as a reminder that there is a whole world under the BQE to explore. And some forward thinkers in Brooklyn (where else?) have been doing just that, brainstorming possible uses for the vasty public(!) space under the BQE. They even brought in the Space Buster (below), a sort of R. Buckminster Fuller-by-way-of-Rube Goldberg contraption to encourage creative thinking.

The most popular potential use seems to be community garden space. I'd like to see a kind of boardwalk stretching for miles--or at least many blocks--with art, cafes, and beer gardens.  It might be a bit loud but just imagine the views of the city from ground level!

Bring on the trolls!
