Ken Gordon volunteered at the Uni launch and is now a Board Member.

Six years ago this morning, we launched the Uni portable reading room in Lower Manhattan on Sept 11, 2011. Leslie and I are grateful to everyone who has joined us along the way.

Just last month, we quietly passed another milestone, setting up the Uni for the 500th time in New York City. 

Onward.

The Uni, a portable reading room for New York City, launched at New Amsterdam Market on Sept 11, 2011.

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!
