My husband and I are struggling and without the ability to use AirB&B we would have to give up our apartment that we've in for the last nineteen years. We love our apartment and very much want to keep it. Please allow airb&b the right to maintain its business in NYC and elsewhere in the country. This is also good for people who want to come to the USA to visit, but couldn't afford a hotel. Other countries have it and have had it for some time. It would be a pity to close America to people by denying them an economical way to come. I think this is all good, except perhaps for the big hotels who seem to be afraid it will take away their patrons. Thank you for your consideration.
