If you are new to a neighbourhood or have not yet had a chance to meet all of your neighbours, it is easy to find out who lives on your street. Many neighbours are willing to meet and mingle with those who live around them, and sometimes they become close friends. In some neighbourhoods, though, meeting and mingling is discouraged because people want their privacy, or knocking on strangers' doors is potentially dangerous. By introducing yoursel,f or by utilising the resources of the internet, you can quickly find out exactly who lives on your street.
Go out and introduce yourself. Explain that you live in the neighbourhood and would like to meet other neighbours. Let them know where you live, and tell them a little bit about yourself. The chances are high that if you tell them about yourself, they will do the same. If you don't feel safe introducing yourself to your neighbours or would like to give them their privacy, skip this step.
