Meet Your Neighbors: Shelby
On this edition of Meet Your Neighbors, we sat down with Shelby Gray, who lives in one of Downtown Dwellings' brand new apartments in the SoMa District. Originally from Lake Havasu, Arizona, she has been in Arkansas for three years, living in Jacksonville until she realized there was no nightlife! She liked Downtown Little Rock because it's close to everything, and there are plenty of cool, fun things to do any time of day.
She found out about her new apartment on Louisiana Street from her best friend Courtney, who recently rented a newly renovated apartment at the same location. When she called Downtown Dwellings to check to see if they had any apartments there for rent, she found that one was coming available.
During the day, Shelby is a store manager at a beauty retailer. When she's not working, she loves to spend time with her best friend, and her dog named Romeo, a 4-year-old dalmatian terrier mix (he actually just had a birthday - happy birthday Romeo!). They love hiking, especially Pinnacle Mountain, going to the lake and taking a walk in the neighborhood to Loblolly Creamery for a sweet treat and going to The Bernice Garden Farmers Market. SoMa has many dog-friendly events, and Romeo's favorite is the SoMa Mardi Gras Dog Parade. Shelby also loves to bake, going to the movies, and doing her makeup. Her favorite spots downtown include the RiverMarket, Community Bakery, and anything along Main Street in the SoMa District.
If you see Shelby Downtown, feel free to say hello and introduce yourself as one of her neighbors!
