Hola folks in NYC!
I done screwed up my dates and timing but good, and have realized today that I'm flying into New York (well, Newark is where I'm flying into, but visiting NYC) this Thursday evening not next week, as I had thought, leaving me suddenly scrambling to find a couch I might stretch out on for a few nights (7-9th to be precise).
I say semi-desperate because I can (and will) be able to stretch things to a sketchy hotel if I have to, but it will pretty much use up my entire budget, and I would really like to see the city and so forth while I'm there.
If you, or anyone you know, might have some room for a schedule-impaired but otherwise rather charming Canuck, with references, willing to do housework and/or throw some $$ towards you/them for crashspace, please let me know.
In any case, thanks for any assistance you might have, and see you all on the Playa!
