Back last summer, we did a little story on home-swapping—that unreal deal where you trade your simple Brooklyn abode for a glitzy vacay in its international counterpart. (Who knew one Ditmas Park equals one French Alps?) Well, it’s summer again, and that means the Europeans are clamoring anew for the BK real-estate. Our friends at Jauntsetter found a Craigslist ad today from a couple of Parisians who want to trade their Canal St. Martin loft for a place in Brooklyn (or Manhattan) for 10 days at the end of July. Crepes, anyone?
The one-bedroom, located in a “peaceful, charming, and very safe” neighborhood, is up for grabs between Jul. 25 and Aug. 10. It’s 15 to 20 minutes from the city’s big sights, and for those lazy afternoons (we know this is the real draw), the loft’s decked out with a flat-screen, WiFi, Play Station 3 and a Wii.
