Superheroes come in all shapes and sizes. The Uni is so pleased that 826NYC, home of Brooklyn Superhero Supply Co, has curated and donated a cube of books featuring young New York writers.

The 826 donation includes several remarkable non-book items which challenged our cataloging system in the best way. (See 826 Cube catalog below.) Thank you 826 for your work to create a new generation of writers, and for showing us how the inspiration to read and write can come from a label on a can, as well as a published book. Cheers.

We're getting a "new" name... Street Lab.

The Uni Project is the work of Street Lab, a nonprofit launched in 2006 in Boston, where we created community-oriented programs for public space. In 2011, we migrated Street Lab to New York City and launched the Uni Project. The Uni began as a single, portable reading room and has since grown into a city-wide initiative offering more than 700 days of pop-up programming in 150+ public spaces across the city. In 2019, we are re-introducing our original name Street Lab to tie all this work together going forward, with much more to come.

For now, details about our programs are available here on the Uni Project web site. Soon, that content will move to Thanks for sticking with us!
