The city has shuttered a Queens flophouse that operated as an illegal hotel listed on the Airbnb site — even offering travelers a $21-per-night stay in backyard tents.
The Corona home at 98-13 Northern Blvd. was one of two hit with a partial vacate order last month after officials deemed them “imminently perilous to life (and) public safety.”
“There is about 40 people on the two floors,” a caller reported to the city last October.
“The backyard has air beds under tents, also.”
When investigators from the Mayor’s Office of Special Enforcement showed up on Feb. 21, they found 27 mattresses crammed into two floors, four guests and one permanent resident.
The two-family property was illegally converted to seven furnished bedrooms where transient guests lived alongside one permanent resident, officials said.
