Introducing the Lowline’s Annual Anti-Gala

Just this Summer, the Lowline received the news we’ve been waiting for from the City of New York: our first official approval. This moment marks an extraordinary turn in our organization’s 5+ year-long run. We’re closer than ever to realizing our innovative vision: a vibrant community space in Manhattan’s Lower East Side. The world’s first underground park.

This official go-ahead is a cause for celebration, and what better way to kick off a season of wild possibility than our Annual Anti-Gala? Celebrate with us this October, and be a part of history in the making.

What is an “Anti-Gala”?

It’s our effort to show that traditions and norms can be turned on their heads; that events can be both inspiring and impactful; and that we’re not just building a park, we’re building a community with the bricks and mortar of creativity, technological innovation and a far-reaching, community-centered vision.
