we are two adults, NY-transplants who work at home, as a freelance journalist and an academic. We have one sweet cat and a 5 year child old whose room is full of fun toys for young kids. We love our neighborhood, its so close to everything and has terrfic burritos and fine dining. the neighbors are terrific too.
we love our home and want swappers who will treat it with the care and respect that a 123 year old painted lady deserves. (San Francisco's colorfully 2 and 3 or 4-tone houses are called painted ladies, walking around and admiring them is a fun way to spend the day_
