Looking for a space to throw an event, produce a shoot, open a pop-up shop? Real estate brokers aren’t usually there to help with the short-term stuff — it’s not like you’re looking to sign a lease for your party. That’s why Adi Biran, Lior Ash and Lihi Gerstner thought up Splacer, a digital marketplace connecting people looking for short term space with the owners of unique (and uniquely available) location, both commercial and private, ranging from studios and galleries to urban gardens, lofts and warehouses.
Cofounders Biran and Gerstner put together Splacer’s guide to New York for BlackBook, great for the times you’re looking for a good shave, a shopping marathon, places to party, and a few other unique spots.
