Uni at NYC Parks

NYC Parks

The Uni Project partners with NYC Department of Parks & Recreation to bring pop-up reading rooms and other programming to parks in the Mayor’s Community Parks Initiative. The initiative envisions a broader role for parks in making neighborhoods more livable and communities stronger.

New York City has one of the largest urban parks systems in the U.S. Parks take up nearly 14% of the city’s land, providing critical open space for residents. New urban parks initiatives around the country are raising awareness about the potential for parks to do even more, by bringing people together and bridging divides.
