An Underground Park - The Lowline
OK, so what is the LowLine?
It is the transformation of an abandoned trolley terminal on the Lower East Side of Manhattan (New York City, USA!) into the world’s first underground park.  This will be a new kind of public space that uses solar technology for natural illumination.  It will use cutting edge design to capture and highlight a very special abandoned industrial space.

LATICRETE Racing Supports Joey Ternullo

LATICRETE USA sponsors Joe and Jennifer Ternullo’s son Joey (see his race car above!). Middletown Ceramics is a valued contractor user of LATICRETE products.

A message from Joey's father, Joe Ternullo:

Joey has been consistent with placing in the top 10 each week (with an average of 18-25 cars). He attended a National Race back in July in Waterford and placed 6th out of 25 cars. Fantastic! He recently placed 6th again a few weeks ago (Saturday night race) out of 19 cars.

He also went up to Bethel Motor Speedway (in Bethel, NY), another National race, and ran a great race, he lead the race with only one lap to go, when his muffler fell off, which lead him to get off the track. Upsetting but everyone knew he did great!

  • Waterford, CT: Joey is ranked (in points) – 8th out of 39th.
  • Nationally, Joey is ranked 49th (in points) out of 203 drivers. Not bad for a rookie!
I think this was a fantastic first year for him - in the new car, new division. We hope next year will be even better with the experience he gained this year.
