My wife and I met in Australia six years ago, while earning our Master's Degrees, and have been living in NYC for the past five years. We have a lot of family and friends who visit often from overseas -so we're pros at hosting people who have never been to NYC before.
We're both professionals who work moderately long hours in Manhattan. Jens is from Germany and Dee is from Alabama.
We've lived in Williamsburg for a year, and we love the neighborhood. In our free time, we like to shop at the farmer's market in McCarren Park, hang out at our local bars, and see live shows at the Glasslands Gallery, which is around the corner from our place.
Reason for hosting: Over the past 5 years, we have learned a lot about the City and it would be cool to share that knowledge with our future AirBnB guests. And for now it's just us, so we have an extra bedroom and bathroom.
