I live in a residential neighborhood, and I definitely sought out a quieter neighborhood when I was deciding where to live with my family. In New York City there are lots of kinds of neighborhoods to live in, and its nice to have the options. Now it seems like I have no option, if my neighbors want to break the law and rent out their apartments to tourists, my apartment becomes like a hotel whether I like it or not, and I don't think thats fair to me, especially knowing that airbnb is making money off of breaking the law
