Our apartment is in the Lower East Side, East Village neighborhood of Manhattan. Pretty much the best restaurants in Manhattan are here - some fancy, some not. There are many incredible boutiques, gardens, farmer's markets, libraries, and galleries in our neighborhood. There is active night life, with great clubs in which to hear music. Punk rock in the US started in this neighborhood, the home of a famous (but now closed) club, CBGBs. It is easily the edgiest, most creative, most musical neighborhood in Manhattan, with a rich political, social, and artistic history.
Something about ourselves
We are Johanna and Aaron. We are both 42 years old, and have a fifteen year old daughter. I (Johanna) am a librarian and my husband Aaron works for a Swiss investment bank, in technology. We're finally settled enough to spend some time traveling, especially as my husband's job sometimes takes him to Europe and Asia. I have a hard time with hotel rooms because I feel lost without a kitchen. I love to explore city markets and cook, even when I'm on vacation. You don't really get to experience a city until you live there, so we hope a home exchange will provide at least a taste of that. We want you to feel welcome in our home, and in New York City. We will do everything we can to make that possible.
