We're from New York City. I'm a medical writer doing social media for a Manhattan hospital. My husband is a university political science professor/administrator. We actually own an apartment on the Upper West Side, but since we do frequent apartment swaps with people from distant places, sometimes we're left looking for a place to live--and, that's a fun way to explore our own city. We also travel a lot and Airbnb has been a wonderful resource for us in many parts of the world.
