Brownstone in Brooklyn, USA

We would like a home exchange with someone in London for a week in either March or April, 2020.

Our home is located on a landmark block in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn, just one mile from the Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan.  Landmark because in the 1860s when this neighborhood was built, they tried building two blocks with both a front and back yard garden.

We are half a block away from Smith Street, a destination for local New Yorkers and visitors alike, who come from far and wide to sample the fine restaurants and shopping one finds there. The F line of the subway system is on our corner, and we are four stops from Manhattan.
Our home was built in 1864 but has been renovated to include a modern cook's kitchen with radiant floor heating, outfitted with elaborate spices, cookbooks and kitchen equipment including a 6-burner Garland range, SubZero refrigerator and dishwasher.  We have two eating areas -- a dining table overlooking the back garden and a counter with 6 stools in the kitchen. There is also a bathroom with a glass encased shower.  The downstairs is an open floor consisting of the living room, a computer and stereo area, the long kitchen including an 8-ft butcher block counter with a huge, deep cook's sink, the dining area and the backyard.  Even though we are in the heart of the city in a 16-foot wide brownstone, one almost feels like they are in a cozy denizen in the South of France!  There is a huge skylight over the dining table which lets in plenty of natural light.
On the second floor is a parlor room with a second living room set up (complete with flat screen TV) and a piano leading into the Master Bedroom which also has a private bathroom with a bath tub and shower.
On the third floor are two bedrooms and an open center room with a huge skylight, laundry closet with washer and dryer and a third bathroom with a toilet only and skylight.
We have two very independent cats, Benny and ike, who spend a great deal of time sleeping, but love to be around people, too.  Aside fro splitting a can of food each day, the only care they require is to fill their water and dry food bowl periodically.
We offer a car in exchange, but one is not necessary in NYC.  (Parking is a challenge!)
