Airbnb apartment rental ruled illegal in NYC

New Yorkers hoping to rent out their apartments on Airbnb this summer may have to rethink their plans, after an administrative law judge ruled that the website violates an NYC law against operating illegal hotels.

Nigel Warren kicked off the controversy when he rented out his room in a two-bedroom East Village apartment for $100 a night. The renters’ five-night stay was apparently without incident, and Warren’s roommate didn’t mind the arrangement.
