Mr. Schneiderman’s report found that a whopping 72 percent of Airbnb’s rentals in New York were illegal, with about six percent of hosts operating 36 percent of units. The most profitable Airbnb host operated 272 units, which resulted in 3,000 reservations and $6.8 million in revenue. The top dozen commercial hosts on Airbnb brought in over a million dollars year. The issue, determined the Attorney General’s office, is also neighborhood specific: 40 percent of host revenue was earned in the Lower East Side, Chinatown, Greenwich Village, Soho, Chelsea, and Hell’s Kitchen. By comparison, every rental in Queens, Staten Island and the Bronx brought in only three percent of the host revenue.
