The Uni is working flat out—visiting up to three NYC neighborhoods a day, and we love it. If you want to tag along, here are some ways to follow the Uni, at your preferred periodicity.


Try our quarterly email newsletter. Quarterly means only four emails a year, folks. The newsletter is mobile friendly and sent just before rush hour, so you can read it on the subway. Occasionally funny, always brief.


If you want more flavor, try our blog. We announce big things as they happen and provide a monthly summary on the first of each month. So, mail that rent check, and then hit our blog to lift your spirits. (Nerds follow our blog via RSS.)


Each day, we post once on social media, usually a nice photo of the Uni out and about in NYC. The Internet can be grim, so we try to post something meaningful. Thanks for following!

Real life

Visit our calendar, filter by date or neighborhood, and visit the Uni in person. We’re all out there, our amazing staff, Leslie saying hello, and me typing this blog post on my damn phone. See you on the 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!
