A 20-year-old Manhattan bed-and-breakfast business appears to be an unintended victim of the city’s crackdown on Airbnb. The Ivy Terrace bed-and-breakfast at 230 East 58th Street was hit with $8,000 in fines on Aug. 7, even though owner Vinessa Milando says she hasn’t booked a single guest through Airbnb, Crain’s reported.
“My business is a bed-and-breakfast. There’s no way to fix the problem other than shutting down,” she said. “This is all I do. This isn’t a side gig. This is my business since ’97.” “The city depends on establishments to follow the law intended to protect affordable housing,” a spokesperson said. “This building is legally six apartments for New York families.”
