Super Bowl Homes Command $1,600 a Night as Listings Jump

Larry Kennedy was rooting against the New England Patriots this week, and not just because they often beat his favorite team, the Buffalo Bills. He figured a Denver Broncos win would provide a better chance to make money renting out his Manhattan apartment for the Super Bowl.

Kennedy, 26, listed the home on Craigslist and Airbnb three days ago after the Broncos and Seattle Seahawks secured spots in the National Football League championship game in nearby East Rutherford, New Jersey. He and his roommate are seeking $750 a night for the two-bedroom apartment in Greenwich Village, which may help cover some of the $3,300 monthly rent.
