Friends of the Underline
If you’ve made it out and enjoyed the new urban green space that’s been dubbed “Brickell’s backyard,” you have Meg Daly to thank. After breaking both her arms in a bike accident, she became a regular Metrorail rider, and noticed the massive space under the tracks could be put to better use. Her dream was The Underline, a mix of bike paths, green space, and exercise areas stretching 10 miles down the Metrorail. Her nonprofit, Friends of the Underline, has been the driving force behind its development. And as its first phase opened this month we’ve gotten a sense of what a magnificent addition it will be to the Magic City.
