About Me
I am a graduate of Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health and have owned and lived in this townhouse within walking distance of Columbia for many years. Several years ago I converted it into four individual, fully furnished apartments. The majority of my tenants are exchange post-doctoral students, summer associates and professional academics in New York for research and temporary assignments.

We stayed at Isabella's place during a sabbatical in the fall of 2016. Had an amazing time. The apartment is wonderful - very light and airy - and within easy walking distance to Columbia. Isabella is very nice and takes good care of the place, and her tenants. The house (at least when we were there) was all academics and we became friends with some of the other tenants. The only downside is that the apartment does not have a dishwasher/washer/dryer. However, we managed, and spending time in the laundromat around the corner added flair to our New York experience. We bought used bikes the first week of our stay and took delightful trips through Central Park (one block away) every other day. I can highly recommend that - and Isabella's place more generally!
