For more than 30 years, Ms. Hetty Fox has made sure there is a safe place to play in the Morrisania neighborhood of the Bronx. (See New York Times article.) We’re honored to have been invited to participate in this play street. The Uni marked the first time that books and learning were part of the mix! Our partner was Transportation Alternatives. Thanks to Amelia Carver, Emily Jacobson, and our special guest Rosemary Rivera, Bronx-born author who grew up nearby.
We’re in the middle of three play street deployments, testing our new Uni Cart. The cart lets Uni staff move into place faster, so they can spend more time reading than shelving. Onward.
