NEW YORK CITY: New Anti-Airbnb Ad

A group called Share Better has taken their New York City campaign against Airbnb to television in recent weeks, with the below spot airing today on CNN. From their about page:

We are a group of New York City friends, neighbors, community activists and elected officials of this great city who have a unique perspective on the so-called “sharing economy” and Airbnb in our neighborhoods. Far from being a harmless service where New York City residents can share their homes with guests to the City, Airbnb enables New York City tenants to break the law and potentially violate their leases, it exacerbates the affordable housing crisis in our neighborhoods, and it poses serious public safety concerns for Airbnb guests, hosts and their neighbors.
