Yale '10 Looking for Summer Sublet Mid-may to August

I am a rising senior at Yale University and am working for a non-profit public interest law firm from mid may to the beginning of August . Looking for one room or suite.  Non-smoking, animal friendly, & charming.


Yale '08 Grad looking for room or studio

I'm an 08 grad of JE college just starting work as a Literary agent in midtown. I'm looking for a room or a studio on either the east or west side but no farther uptown than 90th street. The east or west village or anywhere in midtown would also be fantastic.

My interests are literature, philosophy, history and writing generic paragraphs about myself for housing applications. I'm an American citizen but was raised in London and so have an accent like those delightful redcoats you all remember so well. I need a place as soon as possible as I can only impose on family friends for a finite period of time.


Thanks for reading the YAAMNY
