Interesting, well that is good for them but unfortunate for the other in the city who want more housing. And the people renting through Airbnb is probably for similar reasons whereby renting it out is not that profitable so people turn to other means (SF I know bans renting out apartments you yourself rent, but maybe NYC has different rules).

I am interested in politics, economics, & policy. I work as a data scientist and am passionate about using technology to solve structural economic problems.
