Airbnb: nobody is enforcing the law

Boroughs may have passed laws limiting Airbnb to certain streets or zones, but nobody is enforcing these laws and many technically illegal rentals are being advertised openly on the Airbnb site. Even if the city outlawed Airbnb and its ilk completely, as suggested by FRAPRU, it seems likely things would still continue as they have been. It’s similar to how Uber arrived here, running an illegal operation but trusting to sheer demand to force its acceptance on a weak government.
