Dan Barasch and James Ramsey have a crazy plan — to create a park, filled with greenery, underneath New York City.

They're building it in a trolley terminal abandoned in 1948, using technology that harvests sunlight above-ground and directs it down below. It's a park that can thrive, even in winter.
