About the Host, Cynthia
Hello! We are Cynthia and Andy – a thirty-something couple from Ireland and U.S. with a large 3 bedroom apartment on our hands. After doing an apartment swap in Paris, and trying Airbnb in Berlin, we figured we'd become hosts ourselves.
A bit about us: Andy's an academic (literature); Cynthia works for a non-profit Cultural Institution. Cynthia's lived in NYC for 12+ years in various neighborhoods, and is happy to provide you with local tips and advice on navigating the city during your stay.
We do not speak about ourselves in the 3rd person in-person.
