• Where to stay!
• Everybody is kindly asked to please arrange for your housing yourself. (Please see here the subway map of NY.) Please see Accommodations in and around the Columbia University neighborhood (we thank Tony Jenkins for allowing us to use his compilation!)
• Please see also US SERVAS, hosting people generally for one to two nights. Any extension beyond that is up to the host to extend, and traveler to accept. Most NYC hosts do not host more than a week, if the visitor is someone they really feel comfortable with and grow to like. Again, that is up to the individual.
• Please see also
• Please see furthermore Sara’s New York Homestay, through which international students, visitors, interns or executives who come to New York (also Los Angeles, Paris or London) for a short period of time (1 to 12 months) can find a place to stay (four weeks Manhattan 1500 USD, one week 900 USD, less outside Manhattan; when you write to them, convey greetings from Evelin: I visited their office on November 19, 2007, and presented our HumanDHS group to Bernard Zagdanski, Sara’s husband).
