Hi there. I'm a writer and analyst, and a born and bred New Yorker. I've owned this house for several years, and friends and guests always remark upon how unique it is. More importantly, most people go bananas over the location. It is on one of the most lovely and quiet blocks in the West Village. So if you're looking for a stay that mimics what it feels like to live as a downtown New Yorker, I think you'd be hard-pressed to find a better alternative.
I have a small elderly dog who will be curious about you but will otherwise leave you alone. He's extremely adorable and even has a fanblog in his home country of Japan. He's non-allergenic and scrupulously clean. He looks like a small fox.
As a writer, I tend to spend my working day quietly writing. I am also a competitive athlete (fencer) and work with Olympic and professional athletes in helping them train. They come to my townhouse for consultations, so you may find yourself rubbing up a shoulder against an Olympian. The training is conducted in the downstairs portion of the townhouse, so it does not interrupt your area of the house. I keep pretty exclusively to myself when I am home because I am usually working, writing or preparing/researching to write, so you don't have to feel an obligation to chat. But of course, you are most welcome to ask questions! Also, I provide a little cheat sheet to the neighborhood.
I am a seasoned traveler and have spent most of my life living and working all over the world. I speak English, Portuguese, French and some Dutch. I've lived the business traveler's way of life, so I know how important a clean but home-like atmosphere can contribute to the stresses of being on the road.
I look forward to hosting you.
