  • 1. Underground park in Manhattan
    • By Finnian
  • 2. What the heck am I talking about?
    • Well, recent news has shown that there has been an under ground park proposed for Manhattan.What I mean by “proposing”,is that there is an abandoned subway terminal,and people are saying things like...
    • “ if you give it to me i will make a parking garage”,and things like that.
  • 3. Here is what it would look like
  • 4.  
  • 5.  
  • 6. it’s pretty cool
  • 7. here is a summary of whats happening
    • An abandoned subway terminal in New York City is being pitched for redevelopment into a sunlit, subterranean park -- replete with 60,000 square feet of flowers, ponds and trees.
  • 8. facts
    • Located in Manhattan's trendy Lower East Side, the vast underground space -- which is about the size of a football field -- has remained untouched since the terminal was discontinued back in 1948.
    • Discontinued means to stop doing something
  • 9.
    • Now, a group of entrepreneurs are proposing an elaborate green makeover, in which sunlight would be "harvested" above ground and channeled into the vaults below via a network of fiber-optic cables -- creating an environment apparently filled with natural light and, in theory, ripe for growing all the foliage of a typical city park.

  • 16. Why is this important?
    • There are a few reasons...
  • 17.
    • one. Making an underground park in Manhattan is a big leap forward for technology
  • 18.
    • two. Because its important to know how much technology has evolved. We could only imagine what kind of technology we would have in 10 years or so.
  • 19.
    • three. I also think that in the future we could be living under ground and on the surface of the earth, because we have the basic things mankind needs to survive underground: food,water,oxygen,and sunlight
  • 20. why else is this important
    • If this underground park idea succeeds then we could use the underground idea for other things like...
  • 21.
    • growing crops underground because the world is running out of resources and we can’t feed 7 billion people.
  • 22.
    • if you are confused about something then now is the time to ask me because now I am taking questions.
  • 23. thanks for listening
