Although there is another apartment on the premises, the 2 main floors where your room is located is where I have my room, and my son lives with his roommate on 3rd floor. I am out of town frequently, but you'll hear or see folks now and then in the main hall.

I feel fortunate that I have a historic post-Civil War home in the New York City borough of Staten Island and I enjoy sharing it with others. Being an interior designer, I've put a lot of attention to detail in decorating the various rooms and enjoy keeping them functioning and comfortable for guests. I have an adult daughter who has her own place and my son is away at school most of the time, so their rooms are frequently available.
I've traveled a lot in the US, as well as Europe. My favorite travel destinations so far are Cyprus and Poland, where I have relatives. I am a musician and a singer and enjoy our local art scene here on the island.
