Not content with offering people a spare couch through Airbnb as some people do, now a NYC entrepreneur is offering to let you sleep overnight in converted taxi cabs which he also advertises on Airbnb.
What you get is double bed and not much else. No cooking facilities or toilet and sometimes in really hot weather the aircon leaves something to be desired. But it is cheap, around $22-40 a night, with fabulous views looking back towards Manhattan.
Your host jonathan Powley, does give you a list of which local stores will let you use their restrooms and where you can take a shower, ( which is at nearby local pools). It’s all perfect for the adventurous traveller (plus companion) and he has no trouble keeping booked out. But come the depths of winter….yes that might prove a little daunting.
