Tenants may be at risk as Airbnb ads flood rent-stabilized Brooklyn apartments

Someone is papering a rent-stabilized housing complex in a rapidly gentrifying neighborhood with flyers urging tenants to list their homes on Airbnb, housing advocates told the Daily News. New York Communities for Change canvassers were knocking on doors at the Ebbets Field apartment complex in Crown Heights when they spotted flyers for an “Airbnb agent and manager” promising big bucks without all the hassle of setting up the listing. “A few of our folks were canvassing and stumbled upon this ‘Airbnb, earn $2,000 to rent out your apartment’ — which is ironic, because they’re up in a rent-stabilized apartment where it’s illegal to do that,” the group’s executive director Jonathan Westin told The News.
