Airbnb can be a contentious issue — it can give you a more affordable place to stay, a more authentic experience in a city, and allow you to meet new people from the places you’re visiting. On the other hand, it can “black out” entire blocks of tourists, drive up prices, and take valuable rental units off the market that could otherwise potentially be affordable. In this week’s Next City partnered article, contributor Nina Feldman walks us through the New Orleans experience — a city reliant upon its tourism industry — six months after it implemented regulations on legalized Airbnb.
