ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the tourism sector in New York City. The city has several victims of an overheated tourism market and unscrupulous landlords. With hotel occupancy rates in New York City at 89% and the average cost of a New York hotel room nearing $250 a night, more and more landlords are taking advantage of the situation. With the arrival of New York's busiest tourist season, unsuspecting visitors from around the world are showing up at their hotels only to find they are apartment buildings, with rooms that frequently lack even the barest essentials.
