The Uni met several hundred kids and a marching band in Brownsville this Halloween. We went to Brooklyn to join a festival organized by Pitkin Avenue BID and set up on Zion Plaza at Pitkin and East New York Ave. Our participation was made possible in part by Penguin Random House and funds granted by the Charles H. Revson Foundation through the Neighborhood Plaza Partnership. Photos and video below. Look back at Halloween 2013.

Uni Librarian/Site Manager Rasheen Lucas reflects for a moment as Halloween in Brownsville winds down. Rasheed helped manage the Uni at NYC play streets this summer.

Thanks Brownsville for our fourth and final visit the neighborhood in 2014. See you next year!

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!
