Nice to meet you! In the profile pictures you see at your left, I'm the one with the dark hair and glasses, and the handsome guy sitting next to me is Ryan, my partner. Together we live in a one-bedroom apartment in what's often called "Hudson Heights," a handsome, secluded subsection of the larger Washington Heights neighborhood in upper Manhattan, about 25 minutes' subway ride away from Midtown and Times Square. We've lived here since 2009, but we've been together since 2004.
Ryan and I both work in higher education: his field is music and mine is theater studies. We love the arts, reading, film, quality television, good food, wine, dancing, taking day-trips, and spending time with our friends and families.
We always leave town around Christmas and New Years to visit our respective families across the country, and so we decided to join AirBnB to help us find potential guests to stay at our place during the holiday season and during other times throughout the year. We're excited to see what possibilities AirBnB has in store for us, both as hosts and as travelers.
As you can see from the pictures of our apartment, we also have a super adorable cat named Noa. Noa will be staying home during our upcoming travels, so we're offering a discounted rate for our apartment in exchange for some basic catsitting services. (Noa loves making new friends.) Food and water will be set out and available for him, so all he'll need is love.
We're looking forward to hearing from you and getting to know you.
