Homes Are Not Hotels Poughkeepsie Block Party
August 13, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
For the Many is hosting a Block Party in Poughkeepsie to get the word out about our Homes Are Not Hotels campaign! RSVP here!
This campaign is taking on one of the major factors in the Hudson Valley housing crisis: vacation rentals (like Airbnbs) owned by absentee investors who live off-site. These outside investors are buying up huge amounts of houses and apartments and turning them into unregulated hotels for tourists instead of renting or selling them to long-term Hudson Valley residents.
Fewer housing options means that rents, property taxes, and home prices are going up for Newburgh residents while outside investors make a huge profit from renting to tourists. We’re fighting back and saying: our homes are not hotels!
