On Thursday, Oct 20 the Uni joined a city-wide celebration of Food Day called the “Big Apple Crunch” at La Marqueta on East 116th St. Thanks to our host and partner New Harlem East Merchants’ Association, with a special shout out to NHEMA’s Carey King. Over 120 school children participated and NYC City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito dropped in too. Thanks also to volunteer Amy Wilensky for helping manage the crowds!

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 600 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!
