Apartment in NYC to swap with apartment in Tel Aviv

I am looking to swap my beautiful 1-bedroom (shey hadarim) apartment in New York City's Upper West Side for an apartment in Tel Aviv in July and August (some flexibility).  Need to share the place with two very easy-going low-maintenance cats.

Approximately 1 mile (3 subway stops) from Columbia University, Union Seminary, JTS, and Manhattan School of Music.  1.2 miles from Fordham University, the Juilliard School, Lincoln Center, and the New York Library.
