214-West-21st-Airbnb - Larry Gluck

 

Larry Gluck’s Stellar Management is taking legal action against the market-rate tenants of a Chelsea building for allegedly renting out their apartment through Airbnb.

A recent lawsuit claims that since signing a lease in March at Stellar’s 214 West 21st Street, between Seventh and Eighth avenues, tenants Vitaliy Pereverzev and Marcela Torres have made their apartment “available on a continuous basis to tourists and other transient visitors.

” The defendants have used Airbnb to advertise the two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment for stays of at least four nights at a nightly rate of $375″, according to the lawsuit. The stays are illegal under a 2010 state law banning multifamily building tenants from subletting their space for less than 30 days, the New York Observer reports.
