Central London, 4 storey house, sleeps 8, small semi-formal garden, NYC flat swap

We have a full house (4 storeys, 4 bedrooms, a double living room, garden, etc) in central London. We're 15 minutes by foot from the British Museum, 15 minutes by foot from King's Cross/St Pancras (so easy access to the center of Paris with a 2-hour Eurostar train), and 2 blocks up from the market street Exmouth Market. Between Intellectual Bloomsbury & Design-friendly Clerkenwell, we're in central London near the wonderful Coram's Fields park (with farm animals) and of course convenient to plenty of commerce. We're equidistant to tube stations: Russell Sq, Farringdon, Angel and King's Cross Station.

We're looking to swap our place for somewhere (a 1-bedroom is fine, so long as it sleeps 4 people) in Manhattan. My mother lives in Chelsea and it would be ideal to be in walking distance from hers, or at least in either lower Manhattan / on the West side.

MANHATTAN SWAP: We're looking for two weeks (last 2 weeks of October, over Christmas, or possibly the last two weeks of Feb, during our son's school break)

We're also open to other places / swaps, Buenos Aires and Rome in particular.

About Me
We're an expat family of four: I'm from NYC, my husband Hernan's from Buenos Aires, and our two sons (Sebastian & Balthazar, 8 & 3 respectively) were born in Paris (One considers himself French, the other considers himself English). My husband and I have a company, THATMuse, which stands for Treasure Hunt at the Museum (currently with themed hunts at 5 museums across the British Museum, V&A, NHM in London and Louvre, Musee d'Orsay, streets of Paris (THATRue), with eyes on my home museum, the Met in NYC. We currently live in a 4-storey house in central London (15 minutes by foot from the British Museum), and would like to do flat swaps in Manhattan (a 1-bedroom is fine, so long as it sleeps 4 and is in Manhattan, preferably downtown, as my ancient mother lives in Chelsea).
