In this rushing, bustling society we live in, it’s proven more difficult than many thought to connect with folks who live down the street. We’ve lived in Congress Park in Denver for more than 10 years and have only met a handful of our neighbors. Whenever I see a block party going on, I lament and wish I would be more in tune with my area. If you are like me and wish to connect more readily with those in your ‘hood, or just need to know what’s going on, there is a great tool available called “Nextdoor.com”. This free private social network groups members by their specific neighborhood, allowing posts regarding lost pets, local crime to watch for, service provider recommendations, and more!
