I live here in NYC with my beautiful wife and we love the neighborhood. We're a couple of 30-somethings that try to soak up the city in between working and living. We love going for runs by the Hudson (4 blocks away), going to the greenmarket in Abingdon Square (great muffins and fruit), going to a nice little BYOB (Tartine - 3 blocks away) on a weekday, and of course doing the quintessential NY thing...Central Park, Brooklyn Bridge and more.
My favorite food...anything that is interesting with a scene, and there's plenty of that in our hood.
My style of traveling is perfect for Airbnb, because I always love to be where the locals are...to see the real sites, eat in the real restaurants and live like a resident. I hope the same for you when you stay with us.
