New York City Bans Short-Term Holiday Rentals

Is it too soon to call it a trend? Three weeks after Paris announced a ban on short-term apartment rentals, New York City has followed suit, citing the same reason: a city-wide housing shortage.

The New York ban takes effect in May 2011. Meantime, here’s hoping Rome and London aren’t planning to join in, too.

I think it’s good that the government if New York City is paying some attention to the housing needs of the people who live in the city.

As long as there are hotels that tourists can stay at, all will be OK.
