sesame_200Long before the Uni portable reading room, New York City streets provided a rich environment for learning. New Yorkers of all ages, colors, fur, and feathers sounded out words and read together on stoops. It happened on television, but it forever changed people’s vision of the city and ideas about where learning can happen. Sesame Street.

We’re honored to receive a donation of books from the Publishing Group at Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit behind Sesame Street, which will form a new mini-collection that we’ll share on the street. New York City kids are going to love this.


Some of the titles that will be hitting the streets in the Uni.



Leslie was excited to visit the home of one of our favorite New Yorkers.
Thanks Sesame Workshop!

About our “new” name… Street Lab.

Street Lab began in Boston in 2006. In 2011, we moved the organization to NYC and launched the Uni Project, which was a portable reading room that roamed the city. In 2020, we are re-introducing our original name Street Lab to tie all this work together going forward, with much more to come.
