I'm an easy-going professional New Yorker, originally from NJ. As soon as I got my MBA from Rutgers University, I moved into the Chelsea townhouse in 1999 with my partner Alex. In 2006 I moved a few blocks west to the Madison loft. You can see both apartments under my profile.
Since losing my job last November, I've been Alex' primary caregiver. Alex is suffering from incurable Stage IV rectal cancer and unable to work. I live at the loft, but I spend all day at the townhouse taking care of Alex. Proceeds from bookings help us pay living expenses and medical expenses not covered by insurance, like transportation to/from the hospital for radiation and chemotherapy.
I've very proud to have recently raised over $6,000 in an online fundraiser to help pay his medical expenses. To learn more, just search for "Help Alex Fight Cancer" on youcaring. Without proceeds from guests like you, Alex and I would lose our homes and would not be able to continue our fight against cancer.
To remain compliant with NYC housing laws and my lease, I must sleep every night in a small room in the apartment, but I'll be away during the day taking care of Alex. Before I leave in the morning to give Alex his meds, I will prepare a full breakfast to your liking. I assure you I will do my best to avoid disturbing you, coming and going only at the times of your choice.
To offset the inconvenience imposed by local laws, my "Celebrity Chef" friend Karin has offered to cater a very special dinner party in the loft or the garden of the townhouse at no extra charge to you! All food, wine and alcohol included. When you see the garden at night in person, you'll realize there is no better setting for a private boutique restaurant! Karin has cooked for Benjamin Netanyahu, Puff Daddy, Stevie Wonder, Gloria Estefan and many others.She will prepare a custom menu to your liking.
I would also love to show you "my NYC" - where I eat, where I drink, and my favorite things about this great city! For me, this is one of the greatest benefits of airbnb. I have made so many wonderful friends from around the world!
