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. .

Greetings coworking,

I love coworking, it’s my favorite coworking in New York City.

I’m on the X floor of X location in Midtown West on December 25, 2022 at 5 PM.

I understand that not everyone is going to respect coworking like most of the members do.

Some people leave their belongings and garbage all over the place.

I would never say a word to anyone about it including your members and even staff at the locations.

I only mention it to corporate here.

Your customer service is stellar by the way 🙂

There are 3 booths on the X floor.

1 both has someone sitting there.

The other booth has had someones things on the table all day since this morning.

The final booth has a sweatshirt on it since this morning.

I moved the sweatshirt so I can sit down to a nearby counter that can easily be seen.

If a person comes back and says they are sitting at this booth I will gladly move.

I don’t feel comfortable ever touching anything that isn’t mine although the sweatshirt hasn’t moved for 7 or 8 hours so I think it will be OK.

There is also garbage on the floor by the elevator.

There is also someone’s phone next to the sink since this morning.

Another person left a note pad on another table hours ago and I placed it on the ledge next to the sweatshirt.

Please fill me in on any additional protocol because I want to follow the rules 1000 percent perfectly and be a positive addition to your community.

Specifially what is the policy if it’s after hours and someone hasn’t been seen for hours and has left their belongings and garbage for several hours in a common area that is blocking other members from sitting.

If you say don’t touch it, of course, I won’t move it.

I hope you have 1000 locations in New York City one day soon.

The coworking team, strategy, and software is amazing.

Please advise.

Thank you and have a great day.

Email to my coworking place about a polite interaction with the cleaning staff in Midtown West on December 23, 2022.


Greetings coworking,

I love coworking.

Today is December 23, 2022. It’s about 8:40 PM.

I was on the fifth floor at X location in the kitchen area.

A member of your staff said they need to clean the floors. Specifically, mop the floor.

I politely and respectfully said, of course, I’ll move and went into a phone booth.

Usually, the phone booths say 30 minutes, this one says 1 hour.

In about 30 minutes or so, I’ll just go to another floor if the person is still cleaning.

I just wanted to let you know that I always treat your staff and facilities with the utmost respect at all times.

Your team does a stellar job running the places.

I always put my garbage and dirty cups in the designated areas.

I would never say anything to anyone, although I see a number of people make a mess and not clean up after themselves. That is why I go above and beyond to clean up after myself and make sure that I create the least amount of work possible for your excellent team.

I tell everyone I speak with that they should look into your coworking offerings.

I’m not concerned about referral fees; I just love the service you provide.

Thank you and have a great day.

Email to my coworking place on November 28, 2022.


Greetings Coworking,

I love coworking. It’s the best coworking on earth.

I was in the kitchen on November 28, 2022. 5:15 PM.

A man walked into the kitchen and tried to crash into me for some reason. I’m unsure why.

I just stopped walking and let the person walk by me.

I didn’t say a word.

Thankfully there were security cameras right there if necessary.

I have no idea who the person is or what he looks like.

If someone at the coworking pours a can of paint on my head and throws my laptop in the garbage, I will say thank you and walk away.

No matter how great of a service you provide, there are always people who will disrespect the place; it’s not your fault.

For example, people that come to the coworking and make a mess, leave cups and garbage all over the place, sleep here, camp out in the phone booths for hours, etc.

If I see anything blatant, I’ll report it here.

I keep to myself. I do my networking on the web, not at the coworking.

I treat everyone at the coworking, staff, door people, members, etc., with the utmost respect. However, I’m not looking to make contacts from the coworking, and I’m not looking for dates at the coworking.

There are plenty of places to meet people in New York City.

I like to have places like your provide to work.

I would never put myself in a position for there to be a misunderstanding with someone that would jeopardize my good standing at the coworking.

No one needs to contact me about this; it’s no big deal.

I just like to report what’s happening because there are always people looking for trouble, and I’m not one of them.

I always treat your staff, door people, facilities, etc., with the absolute utmost respect at all times.

There is nothing that even comes close to your coworking in New York City.

When/if I start making money, I’m going to lease space here.

I hope you take over millions of additional buildings because your company is amazing.

Thank you and have a great day.

Warmest Regards,

Mark Pine
