  • Description


    This is a non business post. I am a retired teacher and live with my wife in New York. We can use someone to help clean and organize our home from September through the middle of October. No minimum time required. You will have a private bedroom and shared bath. Three hours a day work. Weekends off. Flexible schedule .
    Last minute during September is okay.

    I can also teach you to sail in September and if you wish, can learn about boat maintenance.

    Public transportation to the center of New York is about an hour. The sailing season runs from June to October. Email me for more information. I also take people to museums,The Bronx Zoo and the NY Botanical Garden. I like photography, video production, riding motorcycles, restoring old sports cars, and horseback riding.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I am a born and bred New Yorker. Every year I am available to show people around NY. I have memberships to the New York Botanical Garden. I sail with mixed, eclectic groups of locals and world travelers. No two excursions are the same. Many of my 200+ guests (from other site) have said in their references, that sailing on my boat was one of their best experiences in their travels. I have been active on another hosting site since 2012 with over 165 references.
