If you’re in N.Y.C. and have a free hour this weekend, head to the Lower East Side for “Imagining the Lowline,” a visionary exhibit in an abandoned warehouse on Essex and Broome. The exhibit is really just an amuse-bouche, a showcase for the real thing: it’s there to help you imagine what it might be like to step into the world’s first underground park.

Mikko Lagerstedt’s otherworldly photos of neatly clipped and illuminated park spaces remind me of how different our experience of nature in urban areas can be from the real thing.
