Watch: Meet 4 Dynamic Airbnb Hosts in New York

From retirees boosting their fixed income to students trying to cover the costs of school, Airbnb helps New Yorkers afford an increasingly expensive city. Because for many Airbnb hosts, the extra income from sharing their home can make all the difference.

When a guest books a stay at an Airbnb home, 97% of the rental price goes directly to the host. 76% of New York hosts say their Airbnb income helps them stay in their homes.

Airbnb hosts don’t just share their homes – they share their neighborhoods and local business recommendations. When Airbnb guests stay local, they spend more money at local businesses.
