On Friday, May 18, we brushed aside some tricky weather and deployed a portable reading room and EXPLORE science exhibit to a NYC DOT Weekend Walk, hosted by the Rockaway Business Alliance. Part of our approach to working in public space is to show up rain or shine if we can. The show must go on! Librarians from Queens Library set up at a table next to us (birds of a feather!) Thanks to our partners NYC DOT and HYPOTHEkids for joining us.

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.
