I can relate to this! I bought a house in a large cul de sac neighborhood 1.5 years ago. At Christmas I brought baked goods to 3 of my closest neighbors. A coworker happens to live in the same neighborhood, and we started a facebook group for our neighborhood. We handed out flyers to tell people about it, and also organized a block party this past September. I think it’s wonderful to be able to walk to a neighbor’s house for a glass of wine and then have a short walk home.
