October 12, 2015- The NYT reports, “New Jersey’s second largest city often resembles a more affordable, if less glamorous, mini-Manhattan — a sentiment a growing number of tourists now share, as they look here for cheaper accommodations.

Yet Jersey City could soon have something New York does not. On Monday, Mayor Steven M. Fulop will introduce legislation to legalize the use of all short-term sleepover web services, like Airbnb and HomeAway. The law is expected to be approved by November.”

Editor’s note: Will the hotel chains be the next taxi medallion company demise? The SEIU can’t be happy about this. Who’s more powerful in politics: homeowners or the SEIU?
