In 2008 I moved to New York City to become a designer and I have been in and out since then, leaving for months at a time to travel in Europe and volunteer in Latin America. Brooklyn is where I call home now, and lucky for me, my sister does too. If you're staying at my apartment, I'm probably just down the street at her apartment so you can call either of us if you need anything. When I travel, I like to find little neighborhood cafes where I can read, write, and waste the day away... I'd be happy to share Brooklyn's (or Manhattan's) finest with you. Let me know what you're into and I can leave you a list of places to go and things to (website hidden): I'm also interested in doing a room swap if you live in London, Paris, or Barcelona!
