A fourth-generation native New Yorker, I love sharing my hometown with people from everywhere. I have been an Airbnb host for several years and also use the site for my own travel plans. I am a corporate writer and enjoy reading, traveling, biking and running, and I have completed numerous marathons.
With roots in every one of the five boroughs, I can recommend hidden spots the typical tourist might not see. Enjoy the Edgar Allen Poe House in the Bronx, the Jacques Marchais Tibetan Museum in Staten Island, great places to eat in Queens--the most diverse county in the United States.
I have traveled to 35 of the 50 U.S. states, most Canadian provinces, and all over Europe. I've worked in a youth hostel in Austria and was an exchange student in Denmark.
I work full-time outside the house and have college-aged children, so I am not sitting in my house 24/7, but I am always available by cell phone to answer questions or help with your travel plans.
While Flushing is located 10 miles/16 km from midtown Manhattan, there is good NYC transit, and my place is very affordable in a very safe (1 of top 10 safest in NYC), interesting, and quiet neighborhood. It's a home, not a hotel, with all the pros and cons that come with that.
