Housing Exchange for Next Winter

Institution/Organization: UCSD

Notice: I'm looking to exchange housing next winter for 2-3 months, timing very flexible. I have a 3-bedroom, 2 bath house in Del Mar, California, 7 miles from UCSD (on a bus line) and a 15-minute walk from the beach. I would like to spend most of the winter in Manhattan, preferably upper West Side, Greenwich Village, or possibly Chinatown, but would consider other areas.
