Looking for housing for French theatre student in NYC

My good friend of many years, the multi-talented French singer-songwriter Gilbert Laffaille (do you remember "Le Président et l'éléphant"?) has two very talented daughters. One of them, Louise, has just come back to New York where she has been accepted at the very competitive HB Studio in a two-year acting workshop.
