Last Chance to see the Lowline Exhibit (and eat meatballs)

Posted by Dan Barasch (Creator)

You know what would be lame?  If you missed the Lowline exhibit that was made possible because of your support!  So don't miss the last few days of our free and public Lowline exhibit. We're hosting a few fun events you won't want to miss:

--Tomorrow, Sat 9/22: A meet-and-greet with Councilmembers Margaret Chin and Rosie Mendez.  Meet directly with the City Council reps who represent the Lower East Side and East Village, and hear why they support the Lowline.  PLUS Lost Weekend will be offering up FREE Blue Bottle coffee from 12-2.

--Sun 9/23: Our second installment of DayLife, in partnership with the Lower East Side Business Improvement District, means we're re-creating our local indoor street fair, with tasty meatballs from Meatball Shop (!), and treats from Pop Karma, Melt, Christian V. Chocolate, and Lost Weekend.  Right in our indoor park.  Um, yum.

Finally, check out this amazing article about our exhibit in the New Yorker, which we think captures the magical feeling we wanted to create with the exhibit:

Hope to see you this weekend!

      Now THIS is a project that I hope becomes a much bigger part of America's overall future.

      I'm so excited that this project has already come so far. I can't make it to the exhibits because I moved from NYC to LA a few weeks after the kickstarter ended. I wish you all the best of luck and I can't wait to see this become a reality that I can visit when I come home. Keep up the awesome work.
