'VERY IMPORTANT NOTE FOR VISITORS: Our property is a single family home. As such it is NOT subject to the new New York law, signed by the Governor this summer, that prohibits the short-term rental of housing units. That law only applies to buildings, such as every apartment building in NYC, containing 3 or more 'dwelling units' (i.e., separate apartments). Our home is not covered by this law because it is a single family unit, and therefore our rentals are completely legal. You may therefore be assured that renting from us will not be in violation of any laws and that you are at no risk of being unable to occupy the premises because the authorities have taken legal action against the property owner.'
