part 2: more help in new york needed.

hiya chaps , I have this 'friend' of mine who's visiting new york from scotland and the place he's staying in (nyu) have told him he has 3 days before he has to find alternative accomodation in nyc , I wonder if any of you kind , generous and charitable folks at metafilter would be able to offer him some sort of help ? in return he tells me he will even go so far as to empty the contents of his dusty cobwebbed sporran and you can have a flat in the centre of edinburgh for a few weeks in return.

How long does your 'friend' need a room for?

Kinda crazy, but I was just looking at a very short term sublet in NYC. Turns out I don't need one -- but I just met Mike at 347-661-3499. 1 Bedroom. Inexpensive (as far as NYC is concerned).

Here's the craigslist ad.

I hear Central Park is warm & safe this time of year ;-)

First time I was in NYC I stayed at a massive hostel in Midtown (had an Andy Warhol theme IIRC) for $22/night. Altho' that was 7 years ago...

New Yorkers...take up the offer & go to Edinburgh for the festival...rents there are Tokyo-sized that time of year! You'll be making money!

I can probably help you out for a couple of nights; we have some spare rooms here. Email me if you want.

Jazz on the Park is nice enough and hopefully cheap enough. If you are in a real pickle, email me (it won't be nice).
