I'm a musician...lived in NYC for 15 years. I live mostly now in Berlin and had been also living until this week in New Paltz with my wife. I've got some concerts on friday and saturday and then am flying out on Sunday.
I'm familiar with the area. If my name is in the application you can (website hidden) me (drummer, composer). Have used airbnb about 5 times and have been very happy with it. thanks, john
