Seven years ago, on the morning of Sept. 11, 2011, we created a pop-up reading room at New Amsterdam Market in Lower Manhattan. This is how we launched the work of the Uni Project in New York City. And it isn’t too different from how we do it today, six hundred deployments later. Thank you to everyone we’ve met along the way. See you on the street.

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.
