Uni reaches readers on the street in Brownsville, Brooklyn

On Sunday, Jun 23, the Uni was part of another DOT Weekend Walk, this time on Pitkin Avenue in Brownsville, Brooklyn, at an event called Summer Plazas organized by the Pitkin Avenue Business Improvement District. This was a classic neighborhood block party, complete with BBQ and an open sprinkler. Thanks to Toni Diaz and Dan Murphy for inviting us. Thanks to Uni volunteers William Brockett, Eleanor Davol, and Malcolm Davol, and Uni installer Peter Zweifel.

A retired firefighter with FDNY Fire Safety Education came by, chatted with Leslie, and admired this book from the Uni. We resolved to create a cube in the Uni about the Fire Department in NYC history.

“I read this book,” said this reader. Pride. This is the way the Uni works.

I have calculated that the extra labor provided by local volunteers is exactly offset by delays while they read books instead of pack them up. Perfect.
