(I'm not back here. shh.)

just say 'no' won't stop initial posts, but it will end the constant back and forth of wasted energy. Unless, of course, the NYC forum actually Likes the arguing. Nah..impossible. That would be 'no'.

OP: it's still NO.

Please read the FAQ - Why renting an apartment in NYC is a bad idea.

They are mostly illegal

They are potentially a scam.

You could be out your money and/or out on the street.

Don't do it.

The answer is still No. Nobody here knows another website that should be looked into.

PrIvate apt. rentals from vrbo or anywhere else are not a good idea. When are you coming (dates) what is your nightly budget (in US dollars) and do you have a particular location you'd prefer? In the meantime, I can recommend these places which offer apt. style accommodation.

milburnhotel.com

beaconhotel.com

affinia.com

jacksbandb.com

If you don't mind sharing a bed

You'd be best advised to avoid VRBO for your New York City travel plans.
