Notes

Seeking a Caribbean home (house, not condo, or apartment) with pool in March in exchange for our NYC apartment at Christmas (or sim, in March). Summer 2022 - We don't know when we will be traveling for Summer 2022. My daughter is applying to university, and we don't know where she will go, or when she will start. Consequently, we don't know when we can travel. Also, she will be working this summer, so the apartment might not be available for exchange at all. We have a very friendly cat named Adrian Binx who will be your roommate if we're doing a simultaneous exchange. It would be appreciated it if the exchanger could look after him while we are away.

Neighbourhood

The Upper East Side is a classic New York neighborhood, and is the location for many films and TV shows. Within walking distance of both Central Park and the East River, you will have access to a multitude of places to visit. Museum Mile runs along 5th Avenue, and starts at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, up past the Guggenheim and National Academy Museum, and ends at El Museo del Barrio and the Museum for African Art. The Luxury shops of Madison Avenue are 4 blocks away. Second Avenue has a great assortment of restaurants and bars, with cuisines from around the world. Brandy's is a well known local piano bar which features Broadway singers in a cozy neighborhood environment.

Getting to my home

Our home is easily accessible from JFK or LaGuardia Airports via cab. From JFK: - AirTrain to Jamaica Station - Walk a block to Sutphin Blvd - Archer Av - JFK Airport Subway Station, Jamaica Center - Take F to Forest Hills-71 Av - Take the E (inbound) toward Lexington Av/63 St -Take the Q to 96th Street (north) -Exit at the northern most exit, walk left (west) and the building will be on your left, a half block up the street.

Nearest airport

LaGuardia (domestic flights)' JFK (international flights) Newark Liberty (international flights). We do not recommend Newark because it's on the opposite of town and traffic can be really bad. There's a train, but then it's cumbersome to get to the apartment with bags when you don't know where you're going.

Getting around

Access via subway is easy, with the 96th Street '6" station a block away. You are a few stops from Grand Central Station and Union Square (on 14th St). The new "Q" subway station is half block away and takes you to 57th Street and all the shops of Fifth Avenue, Times Square and the Broadway theaters and Harold Square, home of the world-famous Macy's Department Store. In addition, there is an Express Bus (Select Bus Service) which runs down 2nd Avenue.

2 vaccinated and boosted adults, 2 vaccinated and boosted teenagers. We typically vacation in Europe the first and second weeks of August. Always looking for tropical, sunny locations for spring break (third and fourth weeks of March). We are not sure of our travel availability in 2022 because our daughter will be beginning university and we don't know when she will begin, or where.
