Retired Professor and Wife Seek Manhattan Apartment for Fall 2021

We've spent so much time in New York that we consider it our second home. Sadly, we don't have a second home of our own there, so we'd love to stay in yours. Our first choice is lower Manhattan, where we have good friends, but we'll consider other areas. Two bedrooms, or a spacious 1-bedroom, with lots of light and easy access to transit. If possible, 1-1/2 or 2 bathrooms. If you're not in an elevator building, no higher than the 2nd floor. We're very responsible and will take great care of your place. We can also provide lots of local references. For more about us, please see our Sabbatical Homes listing #54289. We look forward to hearing from you!

Our two children are grown, and we have two adolescent grandchildren who are now taller than we are. Travel is our passion, and we love vibrant cities like Paris, Rome, and New York.
