This afternoon, the Uni was hanging out on 125th St at Uptown Grand Central with old friends New Harlem East Merchants Association (our host) and new friends HYPOTHEkids (partners in our new EXPLORE cart, an open-air exploration of science). We wheeled into position from our new office space a block away. Science on the street in Harlem. Make a place for learning. 


Placemaking is about partnerships. Thank you Carey King and everyone at NHEMA Uptown Grand Central.

Thanks to HYPOTHEkids folks Angela, Alena, and Temieka. See you soon on 125th Street!

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 Thanks for sticking with us!
