Email to the coworking place where I belong about the Brooklyn location on December 31, 2022.


Greetings coworking,

I love coworking.

I was recently leaving the location in Brooklyn, New York.

It was December 31, 2022 at about 2 AM.

I wanted to quickly mention something.

It’s not a big deal.

I just want to cover myself.

I always treat everyone at the coworking with the utmost respect at all times no matter what. That includings staff, building staff, etc.

When I was leaving tonight the front door to the building was locked like it always is late at night.

I looked over at the door person and he said and motioned for me to unlock the door and let myself out.

I didn’t really feel comfortable unlocking the front door, but of course I wasn’t going to make a big deal out of it so I said thank you, have a great night, and I let myself out.

I’m a New York State licensed real estate broker.

I’m 46 years old.

I’ve been in real estate for twenty years.

I would never touch the lock on the front door of a building unless I was instructed to by the building staff.

I’m just thinking in terms of someone from the management seeing a security video of a person unlocking the front door from the inside.

If the doorman wasn’t there it would be a security hazard.

Additionally, if someone unlocked the front door of the building from the inside without the door person’s instructions that would be disrespectful and of course I would never do it.

In addition to being a polite and respectful person in general, I look at things through a real estate lens.

I might lease out a floor in the building to a client one day or something like that.

I would never burn any bridges with any landords or management companies in New York or anywhere for that matter.

Just wanted to mention it.

I love the location in Brooklyn, it’s one of my favorite.

Thank you and have a great day. .
