NYC Partners With Online Marketplace To Turn The Subway Into An Underground Mall
Pop-up spaces in the New York Subway offer a unique opportunity for small businesses.
Storefront, an online marketplace that connects artists, designers, and brands with retail space, plans to expand on the hundreds of listings it already has around New York City. Through a special partnership with the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), it will soon be able to offer unique retail space for rent right inside the New York City Subway.
The online marketplace’s locations can be rented by the day, week or month, which includes booths at markets and events, space inside established retail stores, and now the New York Subway. “Our partnership with Storefront reflects MTA’s commitment to pushing the bounds of vibrancy in the subway,” says David Bosch, MTA Director of Leasing and Acquisitions.
