  1. 1. Underground park in Manhattan <ul><li>By Finnian </li></ul>
  2. 2. What the heck am I talking about? <ul><li>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... </li></ul><ul><li>“ if you give it to me i will make a parking garage”,and things like that. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Here is what it would look like
  4. 6. it’s pretty cool
  5. 7. here is a summary of whats happening <ul><li>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. </li></ul>
  6. 8. facts <ul><li>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. </li></ul><ul><li>Discontinued means to stop doing something </li></ul>
  7. 9. <ul><li>Now, a group of entrepreneurs are proposing an elaborate green makeover, in which sunlight would be &quot;harvested&quot; 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. </li></ul>
  8. 16. Why is this important? <ul><li>There are a few reasons... </li></ul>
  9. 17. <ul><li>one. Making an underground park in Manhattan is a big leap forward for technology </li></ul>
  10. 18. <ul><li>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. </li></ul>
  11. 19. <ul><li>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 </li></ul>
  12. 20. why else is this important <ul><li>If this underground park idea succeeds then we could use the underground idea for other things like... </li></ul>
  13. 21. <ul><li>growing crops underground because the world is running out of resources and we can’t feed 7 billion people. </li></ul>
  14. 22. <ul><li>if you are confused about something then now is the time to ask me because now I am taking questions. </li></ul>
  15. 23. thanks for listening <ul><li>sources </li></ul><ul><li>edition.CNN.com </li></ul>
