nycdot_200x100On April 30, the Uni landed at the intersection of Wyckoff and Myrtle Avenues, joining an event demonstrating what a permanent pedestrian plaza would be like at this location. The event was hosted by the Myrtle Ave BID and Ridgewood Local Development Corporation in partnership with NYC DOT. (Update July 2016: the community board has now endorsed the city’s plan to turn this intersection into a car-free plaza.)

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.
