Recently married couple Beth and Alex aren’t asking much, just a humble request for a caring citizen to provide a simple roof over their heads… for 7 months… in one of NYC’s most expensive and shi shi neighborhoods…for FREE! So painfully obvious these people are not New Yorkers. And while part of us is convinced these two are completely looney for even attempting to request such a thing, another part of us is thinking about how awesome it would be to have two live-in yogis and massage therapists. OK, you’re right, probably not awesome enough.
But what are these unassuming homeowners in for? We could carry on with the cliched dirty hippy jokes, but we’ll refrain this once, because we used to own birkenstocks and listen to Dave Matthews in a former life (no shame!). Plus the Gawker commenters have probably covered that for us. We will say to those willing to open their home, be forewarned it could go one of two ways: either it’s a match made in nirvana and you end up with two super guru pals getting high on life together or their sojourn goes completely sour and “raising awareness” makes you want to raise hell when Alex’s “meditation” eats in to your bathroom time in the morning. Best of luck to all!
PS. They’re also open for Greenwich – heads up Connecticutters!
Question of the day: What do you think?

I’m the only one in this world. Can please someone join me in this life? Or maybe death…
