See what our former guests have to say about the program and read from their work!
"Staying with Bianca and Ben was a wonderful experience. I felt welcome and at home, the space was beautiful, they were relaxed and gracious hosts. I have so much admiration for what they’re doing with Safe Places—it’s generous and important work, and certainly made my first trip to New York an unqualified success. I can’t recommend Safe Places highly enough. It’s a truly amazing resource for writers visiting the city."
"I had such a lovely stay with Ben, Bianca, and Russell! Ben was flexible with my arrival time and quickly put me at ease. Russell (the cat) immediately cozied up to me and made me feel welcome. It was a great comfortable beginning to my weekend. I was able to arrive to my reading refreshed and relaxed, which has been a rarity for me in the past. I was also thankful for the fabulous coffee from Ben in the morning and advice on transportation and restaurants in the area. Overall, it was a great stay and the reason I had a wonderful weekend!"
