new york airbnb etc

I hear that renting a flat/room via airbnb is illegal. A quite recent new guide book on NY said that we can book short term, of few days, via airbnb ?

Kindly advise.

Also, how do we travel from a midtown or upper area to the ferry point to see statue of liberty ?

Is the ferry to the statue free ?

What is the temperature like in April 2014 at NYC & toronto.

Which is an unsafe area for women in NYC ?

Tks v . much

The guidebook is incorrect. NY law is very strict, and things that may be legal elsewhere are not legal here.

Short term apartment rentals - from ANY source - are almost all illegal and ripe with potential for misrepresentation and sometimes outright scams.

If you need assistance in finding lodging, post travel dates, budget, arrival airport and number of beds needed.

No. the ferry to the SOL is not free. Official ticket vendor here; http://www.statuecruises.com/

The Staten Island Ferry, which has a distant view of the SOL is free.

avoid airbnb that guidebook is wrong its still illegal

you can get the subway look at hopstop.com for directions

if you want to get off at liberty or ellis islands its not free you would have to book with statuecruises.com. If you just want a view then yes the staten island ferry is free

wunderground.com will give your historic temps

NYC is very safe - just be sensible
