Retired Professor and Wife Seek Manhattan Apartment for Fall 2021

Tenant Searching for a Place in New York, New York, United States

Listing #127495

Looking for an Entire Home | Willing to Housesit
Monthly Budget: Maximum USD $1
Last Updated 2 days ago


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. We prefer 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!
