Everywhere we go is by request from local groups or city agencies and we prioritize underserved locations. Since 2011, we’ve offered over 800 days of programming in 229 public spaces across New York City.

We also send kits around the world so that other cities can copy our model. So far, we’ve created more than 50 programming kits for libraries, agencies, and organizations across the globe.
