In July and August 2014, we deployed the Uni reading room to a play street run by Harvest Home next to their farmer’s market on Rivera Avenue in the Bronx, a few blocks north of Yankee Stadium. 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 Leigh Hurwitz! Photos are from July 11, 18, 25, August 1, 8, 15.
These kids in day care were being marched to the other side of the park. No time to stop and read. Next time.
Other activities besides physical play were part of this play street.

Thank you gentlemen of George Jackson Academy, Uni artist in residence Tiffany Lin, and site manager Leigh Hurwitz. See you next summer!
