I am a physician by training, but I now manage this building which is a family legacy. I have lived in New York for most of my life witnessing most of its political, cultural and historical evolutions. I am Greek-born, have lived, studied and travelled extensively throughout Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia. I consider myself a citizen of the world and I respect all ethnicities, cultures and religions. Most of our tenants in the 40+ years that have lived in this historic mansion have been representative of our globe. Some have resided here as long as 25 years. Recently I decided to furnish the rental apts and this year I am accepting short term residents. Since I just joined the Airbnb platform, I intend to continue providing my new guests with the service and the hospitality they deserve. I believe that Manhattan especially is a city that never sleeps providing inspiration to all that visit and live here. NYC IS THE WORLD BECAUSE OF ITS MULTILINGUAL, MULTIETHNIC, MULTIRELIGIOUS AND MULTICUTURAL DIVERSITY.
