Advertisements

On the train this morning and saw the worst ad made possible by a City agency (yeah go figure). For the life of me I can not fathom a room full of people applauding the creation of these ads. I was finally able to get a pic this morning, for I have been seeing these for weeks now.

I am glad I'm not the only who pointed out how terrible these ads are: You May Never Know Why The City's Anti-Short Term Rental Ads

Please fire this person!!!

The ad campaign may be somewhat lame, but I think the message is good. The other day as I was leaving my building I saw four people with confused looks on their faces trying to get in with giant rolling suitcases. I hate the breach of security, possible bedbugs, and unauthorized people coming and going on a daily basis. I think the laws need to be enforced.

The subway doesn't put ads from city agencies through the same process as paid ads. Still, it's no Julio & Marisol. That was an ad people looked forward to seeing the next part of the story.

So what is the law or ordinance that you can't rent short-term?

So no legal AirBNBs or VRBO's?

All of New York City, or just designated parts?

The ads are horrible but they work. People are talking about them.

If you rent on Air Bnb you must either

A) be there on site with the renter during the stay

or

B) rent for over 30 days.

There are a few exceptions for small multifamily homes, but yep.

Most people renting AirBNBs in Manhattan in particular (because of the lack of individual houses) are breaking the law and making it worse for everyone.

The other problem is it is nearly impossible to evict a guest from an apartment.

https://www.lawhelp.org/dc/resource/...from-your-home



Frankly, I hate AirBnB in NYC. When my daughter signed her lease, she got a key to the apartment building. A locked apartment building gives her some protection. When an AirBnB hosts giving out her apartment building keys for each nightly rental, I feel makes her less safe. Those guests can make copies of the keys to gain access after their stay.

New Yorkers know their neighbors who belongs and who doesn't belong in a building. I also don't like strangers hanging around her hallways. It's all about security.

I wonder if I could trade my apartment with someone from Paris for 31 days? The issue would likely be with my co-op board rather than with law enforcement.

I know someone at work who does this: Leaves to Paris for about a month, while a Parisian stays at his NYC apartment. It works out well.
