Despite the Top Questions entries about NYC laws prohibiting most vacation apartment rentals, the repeated scam warnings, and nearly daily discussion on the forum, we frequently have people who still cannot quite believe that a vacation apartment rental in NYC is a VERY BAD idea.

Here is a collection of prior threads recounting negative experiences by those travelers who were either sadly unaware of the problem, or chose to intentionally ignore the legality issue and engage in a shady transaction. Some of these threads never die because others add on their dreadful experience.

Yes, forum regulars are sick of seeing these threads, but collecting them means we can easily add it to the Top Questions section.

This is just a subset of similar threads on the forum. It's a volatile topic, so be prepared for flames! Keep reading as additional first-person accounts may appear.

Why did I ever think that printing out maps ahead of time would be of any help when THEIR ALPHABET IS DIFFERENT THAN AMERICA'S?!. Taxi drivers just absolutely did not understand where I wanted to go and would straight up drive away when I tried. That is when I truly wondered what I had gotten myself into and really how little can a person not think this through before world travel alone?

because even though I blanked and went full blonde ignorant American i'm also willing to be flexible and very stubborn to still have a great time. I missed the day tour meeting spot/time that I wanted to do because I couldn't get a taxi. So I walked around a bit and found a new day tour where I ended up getting to see cool stuff like floating markets and jungles that I would have never known about.
