New York City has an incredible real-estate infrastructure completely left to degradation with great potentialities. Investors, engineers, and designers are already exploiting these spaces and similar ones with beautiful creations, some of these have the potential to change the future of metropolis forever. The idea of bringing a bicycle underground in New York City makes total sense to me. An adaptable bike pavement or an underground bike that would slide through the rails of Manhattan could indeed become a reality in to- day’s New York City. Seeing examples of retrofitting space mentioned previously such as the prominent Highline and the upcoming Lowline are strong realities. Indeed, New York City, being one of the world capi- tals of ideas, creativity and forward-thinking, I strongly believe my design proposal would be just fit for NYC.
