I live and work in NYC (Brooklyn/Manhattan), and spend most of my free time playing soccer. I also am a concert promoter on the side, which is something I do simply for the love of music.
I've known Howard for many years now, both as a friend and as a co-worker. He is one of the most genuine and friendly people you will come across. He is very helpful and dependable and will go out of his way to help you out. He is in touch with his community whether it is through music events, through soccer or otherwise. I am proud to call him a close friend! I have been to his place many times and it is a clean, well kept and large apartment. If you are dealing with him on AirBnb (or otherwise), you can trust him completely and take him on his word.
