Street Lab is a nonprofit that creates and shares programs for public space across New York City. We do this work to improve the urban environment, strengthen neighborhoods, and bring New Yorkers together. We also send kits around the world to help other cities do the same.
Right now, Street Lab is:
- Piloting new public spaces in partnership with NYC DOT and local communities
- Activating Open Streets on commercial corridors to support small businesses
- Prototyping new designs for NYC streets
Since 2011, we’ve deployed our programs 1,942+ times in 393 locations across NYC.
Street Lab transforms each host site, offering visitors a special urban experience—enjoyable, educational, simple, direct, and out-of-the-ordinary.
When I saw what you created on our street, it was exactly what I dreamed of, but never imagined possible. Somehow you created the dream in my head of what the city can be.
