BUILD NYC is a pop-up installation that lets New Yorkers build together with LEGOs and more. Today, we set up on a plaza at the entrance of the park so people on Amsterdam Avenue could stop and join us. Today’s event is part of our series called Pop-up West Harlem! made possible in part by West Harlem Development Corporation, which included a visit last week of EXPLORE NYC. Thanks to our host Jacob H. Schiff Playground Neighborhood Association and to Nicholas from the engineering firm WSP for volunteering today.

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.
