Tips for Airbnb virgins: How to pick a perfect place
The year before launching Subbnb, there was a period when I did not have a place to stay in NY. So I moved in with my folks in Florida, and commuted to NY every month to launch Subbnb. During this time I stayed in several Airbnb's from Chinatown to Sunset Park. I saw the best and the worst that Airbnb had to offer and then some. Being from NY and living in Brooklyn all my life, there were neighborhoods that I thought I knew. But I found that you never really know a neighborhood until you sleep with it. :-)
