About this listing
Weekend home temporarily available only to New Jersey or New York displaced family of Sandy.
I have a weekend home on the border of New Paltz, New York located 90 miles north of NYC. I would like to help a couple (or single parent) preferably with no more than three children by providing temporary housing for up to two months until you are able to move back to your home in New Jersey or New York. All I can do is to provide temporary living arrangements until things get back to normal which might take some time but at least you'll be safe and warm and most importantly, sheltered.
You would need to be non-smokers, no drug use and, sorry, but no pets. You would need to have your own car but if you don't have a car, I could help you make arrangements to get to the house via bus (which runs from NYC Port Authority several times a day) and then a $10 taxi ride to the house. Although the house is 90 miles north from NYC many people commute daily into the city to work.
You will need to pay for your own groceries and all personal items (Stop-n-Shop in town) and I'm sorry but I cannot accommodate any person with disabilities due to access to the house.
This is just temporary housing if in any way I can help a family in need for a couple of months. I would need to have some proof or documentation to show that you are from the area of devastation (state ID or driver's license would be fine) and some kind of referral that you and your family are displaced.
I keep hearing families are in shelters and there are 40k plus homeless at the moment. So I truly want to help a family by opening my weekend home to them. If we come to an agreement and I'm comfortable with you (and vice versa), then I'm happy to show proof of my home, and professional documentation to make you feel at ease and safe and to know where you will be heading to stay. Please send me your request with information on your family.
I'm located in Manhattan during the week but am up in New Paltz on the weekends. This is my second home in New Paltz and would be empty and available for you.
