I´m Estefania, Spanish girl in her´s 24. I´m planing to spend a week in your city. I´ll arrive on 21th and a good friend, Bea, is coming to stay with me on 25th. Both are studing a degree on teaching (children under 4) in Madrid.
We are looking for a couch/several couches and good company between oct 21th and nov 1th. We don´t expect to stay the hole week in the same place, so don´t worry. Just when you can/choose.
I though it would be easier (like in Europe) but I have been sending a lot of personalized couch request for a week and only 3 people reply to say no, so I´m starting to be desperated.
Could we rely on you?
Thanks so much,
P.S. You can find me and my friend on facebook as:

Quite frankly, the NYC CS community is not as large and active as it is in other major cities, not sure why but it's always been like that. Then again I'm not exactly an active member so maybe I shouldn't be talking. The best thing you can do is post on the emergency couch requests and if that doesn't work you should try attending one of the weekly CS meetings and see if someone can take you in and if that doesn't work you could always crash with the occupy wall street folks, they even got free food. It's gonna be cold though so you should bring extra blankets with you
