I know an entire floor of a building in my neighborhood is empty and I know the people who used to live there, couldn't afford it when the landlord started being able to charge a nightly rate instead of a monthly. This is illegal in New York City, but airbnb will not take these postings down, and if they aren't going to follow the law they don't belong in my city.
