Five years ago, the Uni Project brought our original Uni reading room—a six foot tower of books—to Red Hook as part of Sandy relief. This weekend, Leslie returned with an offspring of the tower, one of our reading room carts that now circulate the city. The specific cart that hit Red Hook operates in partnership with NYC DOT, visting Weekend Walks all summer. Thanks to our host Southwest Brooklyn Industrial Development Corporation. Uni Project participation made possible in part by funds granted by The Charles H. Revson Foundation.

The bar next door served beer at their sidewalk tables, enhancing the reading room at sunset.

Yup, Red Hook.

Thanks to everyone who joined us on the street. See you soon!

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!
