David noted, "It is a challenge for lawmakers, particularly in densely populated cities like New York and Boston with high levels of tourism, to find ways to protect not only their 'permanent' residents but also vacationers, business travelers and others seeking 'transient' accommodations…There is no easy solution, and with the introduction of platforms such as Airbnb and others, the challenges have become greater."
