Airbnb Helps NYC Crack Down On Illegal Rentals

According to Gizmodo, New York City’s short-term rental laws make many of Airbnbs rentals illegal in the city.

They explain, "The way the city’s short-term rental laws go, it’s illegal to rent out an entire apartment unless it’s to a maximum of two guests, while the owner is present." In February, NYC subpoenaed Airbnb for the non-anonymized data of over 17,000 listings, which they gave them.

Mayor Bill de Blasio said that the goal is to make Airbnb more transparent and prevent people from abusing the rental platform.

He explained, "We want to know there’s not illegal hotels.

We want to make sure that something that’s supposed to be an occasional business is not a full-time business.” The city is also now raiding Airbnb offenders, "both big and small." An Airbnb spokesperson told Gizmodo, “We have long said that we want to work with the City on an effective regulatory framework and we recognize data sharing is an important part of that.”
