= marks the location of this home
Google 'Hudson Heights' ( I was the founder of the Hudson Heights Owners Coalition, a neighborhood beautification organization). It is a quiet Manhattan neighborhood between the Cloisters and the George Washington Bridge. Walk to the Cloisters and Fort Tryon Park. One and a half blocks to the A train subway and M98 and M4 NYC Transit buses. Convenient to the George Washington Bridge and all airports. Fine dining and grocery shopping in varied shoppes. Extremely quiet compared to mid-town, you can sleep with the windows open and wake up to birds chirping instead of garbage trucks.
Something about ourselves
Presently looking for a long term swap or rental as I have just launched a new business in Paris. Therefore I need to start with Paris. Will consider a reasonably priced rental. My goal is to find a place from 1 June through 20 July 2013, return to New York for August, and then back to France in September. I am a dual national, US & French, single, no children. I am presently starting a new real estate consulting, property and asset management business with headquarters in Paris and teaching at SciencesPo. Check out my linked in profile here http://fr.linkedin.com . If you know of anybody beyond this site that might have a room or an apartment to rent, I'd be interested in that as well.
