Roger is awesome! He was flexible and was very easy to communicate with. Hosting him was easy breezy. Cheers!
Although we did not get a chance to meet Roger in person during his stay we communicated with him through phone calls and texts and found him personable. He seemed to enjoy his stay in the city despite a last-minute change of plans making him a solo traveler. Most guests at least superficially leave the apartment in orderly condition but Roger went above and beyond in leaving it very neat and clean. We'd have him back any time.
He mentioned touring the city by bike, apparently with one of the new Citibike rentals. Interestingly he said he rode on the Hudson River Greenway which happens to be where I run ("every day" .... lol). He also said he took the Circle Line tour. Water is a great way to see the city and nothing gives a better appreciation for Manhattan's layout than taking a spin around the entire island. An economical option is to cross the Harbor on the Staten Island Ferry. Total cost is free.
Roger managed to connect with a text client via the in-flight wifi and keep us updated on his progress (very delayed long-haul flight). He borrowed phones from other people to make voice calls to us (not a shy guy apparently!). He let us know how he was doing during his visit to the city. We have to give Roger extra credit for an exemplary effort in working around the lack of a local phone number.
