This week, we wrapped a special series of pop-up installations in West Harlem that landed at Sheltering Arms Pool, Jacob H. Schiff Playground, and a street festival on Hamilton Place. Our work at Sheltering Arms Pool was in coordination with New York City Department of Parks and Recreation Cool Pools initiative, an effort to spruce up local pools in underserved neighborhoods and help residents make use of these amenities. Pop-up West Harlem! was made possible in part by West Harlem Development Corporation. 

Look back at our Pop-up West Harlem! deployments:

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!
