The Uni reading room at 2017 Weekend Walks
Thanks to a partnership with NYC Department of Transportation (DOT) and funding from the Charles H. Revson Foundation, thousands of New Yorkers are browsing books, reading together, and enjoying the streets of their neighborhoods sitting in Uni reading rooms that pop up in conjunction with “Weekend Walks,” hosted by community groups all across New York City.
Weekend Walks are multi-block, multi-day events on commercial corridors that promote the use of streets as public space. Community based organizations apply to the city to close the street and provide active programming that highlights local organizations and businesses.
Join us on at a Weekend Walk near you. You can read books from a special collection that we sourced from museums and independent bookstores in NYC, sit on Uni benches, and meet our friendly staff who are running these pop-up reading rooms throughout 2017 (schedule).
