I'm a French teacher and former journalist--I am a serious collector (vintage textiles) and my daughter is a serious student who wants to visit NYU, Columbia and the Am. M of NHistory! We live light and walk or ride our bikes everywhere--a bit dangerous in Toronto but...we were living in Paris, France where I spent several years of my adolescence. With Paris as a base we travelled extensively in Europe but I am a Francophile at heart and compulsively scoured villages from the Pyrennes to the French Alps looking for La France Profonde. The abundance of experience that NYC offers in a single day or week rivals Paris. These two cities will never deplete me. Now that I am "stateside" I want to visit NYC regularly--at least 3x a year. Hope to establish a regular airbnb go-to lodging.
