Uni CoronaCorona continues to be one of the most successful locations for an open-air reading room that we’ve encountered in New York City. Corona kids approach the Uni before the books are even unpacked, and families stay for hours, reading together. By all measures—and we love measuring—Corona Plaza is a benchmark that we aim to match across the city.

Thank you to Alex Garcia and The Queens Museum of Art, our outstanding and longstanding partner in Queens. Thanks Uni volunteers Kelly Blanchat and Will Brockett. Photos below.

The Uni operates in high humidity, and today, on departure, the baseplate leaves a curious watermark on the plaza. Thanks Corona, see you soon.

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 www.streetlab.org. Thanks for sticking with us!
