Yesterday, Brooklynite Chris Dannen told the tale of how he made $20,000 from renting his spare rooms out on accommodations marketplace Airbnb–that is, before his landlord hit him with a restraining order. His landlord, meanwhile, having realized the potential of Airbnb, has already started renting out multiple apartments on the service, treating his real estate more like a hotel than a residency. Now the matter is headed to court.
The ironica flip side to this story is that the landlord is likely breaking local laws himself by using Airbnb to find short-term tenants in units zoned for residential.
