As I've mentioned, I'll be spending March to May of this year in New York City, performing the role of an "unreliable tour guide" daily at the Whitney Biennial. Today I just want to ask if any of you know of a room I could sublet in New York for three months. I have a budget for rent, and my only requirements really are that there should be broadband wifi (which I can also help pay for) and that it should be in Manhattan.



I'll actually be spending my first few days in New York in the perfect apartment, a kind of transition chamber between Japan and the US, because I'll be the guest of Karl Haley, whose apartment at Orchard and Rivington I described in Wired News last week:

"Karl Haley read a blog entry I wrote entitled Japanize your ass! and decided to kit out his tiny apartment in New York's Lower East Side with Japanese technologies: a Toto S300 Jasmine washlet toilet, a Zojirushi 3-liter "Panorama Window" Micom Electric Dispensing Pot, a Neuro Fuzzy rice cooker, a kotatsu (a low table incorporating an infrared heater and canopy), and a robotic iJoy 100 massage chair."

Not only is Karl's place full of new Japanese gadgets, it's in my old neighbourhood (I lived from 2000-2002 at 38 Orchard Street). Well, I don't expect to find anything as perfect as that, but all I need really is a place to stay, from about March 3rd to about May 25th. Any ideas, leads, listings, offers, tips welcome; drop me a mail.
