Apartment in New York City, USA. I also am offering my country house that is in the Catskills Mountains. The house is near two large ski resorts and summer park activities.

One bedroom apartment. There is a sofa that folds out and can sleep two. It is in a doorman building and is on the 9th floor. There is a dishwasher and a washer and dryer in the apartment. The neighborhood has many nice restaurants. It is half a block from the subway station and 4 stops to Lincoln Center. Riverside Park and the Hudson River are two blocks away. There is a rooftop terrace that is available to all tenants.
I can also offer my country house on our exchange. You would need to rent a car as it is 3 hours outside of New York City.

We are near Columbia University and many wonderful and varied places to eat. The #1 subway is half a block from the apartment and takes you everywhere in Manhattan, Lincoln Center, Ground Zero, Wall Street, Battery Park where you can get a boat to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Riverside Park is one block away and is a nice, family friendly place to walk and people watch.

About Our Family

I teach six year olds in a private school in Manhattan. For nine years I was the Assistant Principal of this school but my heart was really in the classroom so I returned and am still enjoying watching children learn. You will love the apartment especially the rooftop terrace where you can see the sunset over the Hudson River and the rooftops of New York. I have enjoyed home exchanges in Venice, Raddah in Chianti, Paris and the South of France, Stockholm and Barcelona. It has always been pleasant and successful for both sides.
I am interested in doing a long term exchange anywhere from one month to 6 months, as I am retiring from teaching. This exchange could begin August 2020. So want to live in a New York apartment with a house to visit upstate?
