For NYC rentals: I am a former West Side Manhattan resident now living two miles north of Boston. I own and run a small, bimonthly publication here. I love visiting the city and taking in new Broadway shows and hitting up old stomping grounds from Harlem hole-in-the-wall jazz clubs to West Village piano bars. I also like to visit folks at The American Musical and Dramatic Academy where I attended as well as the family of the two young boys I nannied on the Upper West Side. I have NO pets in tow, NO cigarettes and NO desire to host local friends while staying. I may want to cook a meal or two, but I am no chef and clean up after myself very well.
