It just keeps getting better. A few weeks ago, the Uni went solo to Corona Plaza, and we squeezed a reading room onto a narrow strip of sidewalk alongside traffic and parked trucks. This Sunday, we had room to spread our wings because the pedestrianization of the plaza is underway thanks to NYC DOT. And this time, we had new friends led by the Queens Museum of Art and the Queens Economic Development Council who are on a mission to fill a former parking area with arts, culture, and community-oriented activity. We love Corona—it’s a great place to show what can be done with books and learning once cars are removed from the picture. Thank you to Uni Librarians Stephanie Yee and Anna Robinson, and installer Nelson DeJesus. Thank you to our hosts, especially José Serrano at the Queens Museum. Here’s a look:
That concludes our Summer 2012 schedule. Great things planned for this Fall. Stay tuned and thanks for supporting the Uni.
Update—here’s a short video from Street Films about today’s event:
