I'm a friendly Canadian living in NYC. I travel for work frequently, and like the idea of people using my space while I'm gone and exploring the city from here. My apartment is very comfortable and colourful, in a quiet building and in one of Manhattan's best neighbourhoods.
Generally when travelling I don't sit still but also don't build an itinerary until I arrive. I've had a lot of guests stay with me (but am new to airbnb) and am fascinated by the varied approaches to experiencing this city. I'm fairly hands-off and easy going, and just want people to have a good time in their own way.
