On June 28, the Uni created an open-air reading room on Corona Plaza—our second visit this year. In 2014, we continue our longstanding partnership with Queens Museum as they bring community-oriented programs to this emerging public space. Our work on this plaza is made possible in part by funds granted by the Charles H. Revson Foundation through the Neighborhood Plaza Partnership and Penguin Random House.

She’s got a set of postcards showing the Uni towers that we’ve sent to other libraries and cities. There is a Uni in Kazakhstan.

Great day Corona! See you next month.

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!
