About

I am assistant professor of anthropology and documentary film working in Ithaca, looking for a summer house swap in Brooklyn. I plan on working from home this summer and spending time outside in parks with friends. I used to live in Brooklyn before moving to Ithaca, so look forward to visiting familiar places. I have a light-filled, airy, well-appointed 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath cottage, 1350 sq ft home in the idyllic Fall Creek neighborhood of Ithaca. Ithaca is about a 4 hour drive from NYC. My place is walking distance to downtown and two separate cascading waterfalls, and a short bicycle ride/30 min walk to Cayuga lake, weekend farmers market, and scenic hikes. Wildflowers galore. Ithaca is indeed a "gorges" getaway. See pictures of the home and area here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/nvwu50t9xke95xq/AAAeQC603TyqpUN4nACm42wBa?dl=0 Plant care appreciated, and garden care, if capable and interested. The house is one of four standalone units in a co-op with a shared courtyard. I am ideally looking for a swap from the beginning of June to mid August.
