Help for Sandy victims (New York)

To support those in need of accommodation in the aftermath of Sandy and the nor'easter this week, we've decided to make SpareRoom New York completely free to use for the rest of the year. We're seeing more and more people needing somewhere to stay (either long term or for a few weeks) as the city struggles to get back on its feet, so removing the need to pay to contact advertisers straight away seems like the right thing to do.

If you have a room or a space you can offer to someone in need, you can post it on SpareRoom free. And if you need somewhere to live, you can contact all advertisers straight away, as well as posting a free Room Wanted ad.

To get the free access, simply register on and then click on upgrade (in the top navigation bar), then enter the promo code NYCFREE. You can get a free 14 day upgrade, and use it as many times as you like until the end of the year, to either find accommodation or offer it to those in need. Please let others know who many benefit from this service.
