Did NYC Just Kneecap Airbnb?
Have you ever stayed at an Airbnb where you had the full unit to yourself, where the owner was not present? Have you ever stayed at one with a spouse and a child, or two friends?
In New York City, such arrangements will no longer be allowed. Local Law 18 came into effect Tuesday. It effectively makes the city's roughly 38,500 Airbnb listings illegal.
