There is value in knowing the people living around you, even if it's just so they can check your mail while you're out of town. Getting to know your neighbors will increase the respect you have for each other's space and property, help increase area safety and create a healthy sense of community. It allows you to collaborate on beneficial neighborhood projects and events such as block parties, yard sales or a community garden.
