I have to admit that I feel a little awkward about logging on and introducing myself like this. It isn't really encouraged in New York. In fact, it's pretty much frowned on...unless you want to set yourself up to get robbed or labeled as the weird, overly-friendly neighbor. But, since it seems to be standard practice here...
My name is Cara Clark. I'm pretty well-settled in #807, but I need a little advice about where to shop and where to pick up the best food. I don't want to stand out like a sore thumb as an out-of-towner, and, to be honest, I'm just not sure what's in on this coast.
I've just opened up my own little flower shop. I'm sure you'll catch a glimpse of my arrangements now and again in the lobby. The room needs flowers. Trust me.
I'm looking forward to getting to know all of you!
