The Homeowner

Meet John

Hi, I'm John.
I have lived in the Village for over 40 years. I raised my daughter here and couldn't imagine a place I would rather live. My love for the city runs deep. I am an avid lover of literature, baseball, film, jazz and theater. I am always happy to share in conversation about NYC history.

I am a semi-retired Community Center Director. For most of my life I ran summer camp, after school and sports programs for inner city youth. I maintain a presence in some of these organizations, but after 2 knee replacements, I no longer work full time. On the weekends, I am out in parks, overseeing little league baseball games.

During week days, I spend time reading or doing crossword puzzles in our local park or sitting on a bench overlooking the Hudson River. My girlfriend lives uptown, so I am often out of the house with her, or out with my group of buddies (some of whom live in our apartment building).

As a housemate, I am a quiet, peaceful guy and will give you as much space as you'd like. However, I am also open to developing a friendship with you, as I find sharing a home with someone most enjoyable when there are clear, open lines of communication.

My daughter, Sarah, is my pride and joy. In fact, my entry into after school work was as part of her elementary school a few blocks from our home. She now lives in Colorado, but we maintain a close connection.

I would love to meet you to see if we would be a good fit. Thanks!
