Air Bnb Declared Illegal in NYC

Jump to last reply

We had a lot of discussion of Air BnB at times in these forums, particularly as it relates to New York City, where sublets of less than 30 days are illegal. Well, a court has now declared that Air BnB cannot operate legally in NYC because of this law. Here's a link: http://tinyurl.com/kzs2dql

Since this is now a court order (it will almost certainly be appealed, but I have no idea if the company will win), I suspect the site will have to take down all NYC listings, at least for now.
