HEEELLPP!! Last minute New York trip!!! I need a place to stay! Picture in one of my favorite stores!

So I'm going to New York next week if I can find a place to stay.
My friend Kaylin (in this post and the post below) is having an interview with Nanette Lepore!
Pierre and I would love to accompany her, but we need shelter :) haha
We would be staying from Nov. wed. 17th to  wed. 24th 
I promise to shower whoever hosts us with little presents, groceries, and anything else they need!
thanks guys!
