Street Lab is a nonprofit that creates and shares extraordinary programs for public space across New York City—pop-up reading rooms, open-air drawing studios, and more. We do this work in order to improve the urban environment, strengthen neighborhoods, and bring New Yorkers together. We also send kits around the world so that others can do the same. Bring us to your neighborhood. Get a kit for your city.
Since 2011, we’ve deployed our programs over 800 times in 229 locations across NYC.
The Uni transforms each host site, offering visitors a special urban experience—enjoyable, educational, simple, direct, and out-of-the-ordinary.
Thank you to our supporters!
