Harvest Home logoEvery Thursday in July and August 2014, we deployed the Uni reading room to a play street on E 104th St at 3rd Ave run by Harvest Home next to their farmers’ market. Learn more about our ongoing effort at play streets. Made possible by a generous grant from Shippy Foundation and additional support from Target. Thanks to Uni Librarian and site manager Leigh Hurwitz and Rasheed Lucas! Photos below are from July 10, 17, 24, 31, and August 7, 14, 21, 28.

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!
