Meeting the neighbors
Most of you know at least some of your neighbors at least a little bit. That's what you're telling me, anyway.
Just 12 percent of readers who took this week's poll said they didn't know any of their neighbors.
But an equally small percentage of you are on the other extreme, knowing most or all of your neighbors well. Nearly half of you "sort of" know some of your neighbors, which doesn't necessarily mean more than friendly waves as you head off to your respective workplaces. (This is the category I'm in, incidentally.)
Here's what I'd like to know: Is a neighborhood better -- a nicer place to live -- when the residents know and like each other? Does it matter to you whether you know your neighbors or not?
Those of you contemplating a move: Is "friendly neighborhood" anywhere on your priority list?
