Five years ago, the Uni Project brought our original Uni reading room—a six foot tower of books—to Red Hook as part of Sandy relief. This weekend, Leslie returned with an offspring of the tower, one of our reading room carts that now circulate the city. The specific cart that hit Red Hook operates in partnership with NYC DOT, visting Weekend Walks all summer. Thanks to our host Southwest Brooklyn Industrial Development Corporation. Uni Project participation made possible in part by funds granted by The Charles H. Revson Foundation.

The bar next door served beer at their sidewalk tables, enhancing the reading room at sunset.

Yup, Red Hook.

Thanks to everyone who joined us on the street. See you soon!

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.
