Ken Gordon volunteered at the Uni launch and is now a Board Member.

Six years ago this morning, we launched the Uni portable reading room in Lower Manhattan on Sept 11, 2011. Leslie and I are grateful to everyone who has joined us along the way.

Just last month, we quietly passed another milestone, setting up the Uni for the 500th time in New York City. 

Onward.

The Uni, a portable reading room for New York City, launched at New Amsterdam Market on Sept 11, 2011.

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.
