An Airbnb spokesman told PIX11 in an email statement that Van is no longer an active list on the platform.
“In June 2020, we signed a strong information sharing agreement with New York City, which subsequently provides the city with the insights needed to effectively regulate short-term rentals under the City’s Short-term Rental Data Reporting Act. The enforcement of the law is the responsibility of the city and we have the data needed to enforce the law, which in this case is probably months, “added the spokesman.
