I guess I did a little of this earlier, this is my first time using this site. I'm 44 and am a merchant marine with a schedule of 75 days on a ship and 75 days off. Originally from Texas, I left as soon as I finished at Texas A&M and have been based out of Florida ever since. My first trip to NYC was in 1996 and I have been going back whenever I have a good opportunity or excuse. I have a friend who has sublet her apt through June and been visiting with her family in Ohio and New Orleans but wants to spend a month in NYC to take her nursing boards. We are both foodies, fans of independent music, the Moth, crossing our fingers for weather above freezing so that we can run the 'Burg bridge a few times a week. Hopefully this gives enough of insight to allow something to work out between us if your loft is free for the entire month.
