On June 22, the Uni returned to Pitkin Avenue in Brownsville Brooklyn for the second of three planned deployments in 2014. This event was made possible in part by funds granted by the Charles H. Revson Foundation through the Neighborhood Plaza Partnership.

Uni Librarian Stephanie Yee likes challenges. On her break, she took on the NYPD climbing wall which was set up next to us.

The hardest part of the day: closing the Uni reading room. This patron is still reading even after we’ve rolled away.

Another strategy for closing: remove all the seats! But some patrons will just keep reading.

Another great day in Brownsville. Back next week! Read on Brooklyn.

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!
