The Uni partnered for a fourth time with Phillip Kellogg and the Fulton Area Business Alliance (FAB) to help nurture newly pedestrianized plazas in Brooklyn. By creating an open-air reading room at Putnam Triangle in Clinton Hill, we’re sending a message that these new public spaces can be safe, inviting, and even inspiring places for residents to gather. Thanks to FAB Alliance, Andrew Collins our volunteer science educator, some terrific volunteers from Public Allies NY, and, of course, the residents of Clinton Hill, who joined us on the plaza, despite some ominous looking clouds!

Volunteers from Public Allies NY had some great ideas for organizing the books, and they dove right in.

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!
