Science and Arts Engagement New York (SAENY) is a nonprofit organization committed to increasing the representation of young men and women of color age 15 to 25 in the science, tech, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM) fields. SAENY will construct a 20,000-square-foot Harlem Gallery of Science that will include exhibition, creative, events and commercial space as well as a café. The new gallery, which will offer interactive STEAM exhibits, will attract an estimated 215,000 visitors annually. The location is the former Taystee Building, which is under construction. The gallery build out will be completed by mid-2019 and fully operational by the middle of 2020.
