A few months ago, I returned to city living after 2 years in the ‘burbs. Since moving back to the SE, I realized much had changed in a short period of time. Some of the restaurants, bars, & dance halls I used to frequent were gone – even my previous mechanic had to change locations to make way for the new MAX Orange Line. But, a client recommended I download the Nextdoor app to find whatever I needed, with the help of my neighbors.
Since signing up, I feel very much part of my community! I receive notifications on neighborhood events, such as community meetings, block parties, and fundraisers for local schools. Neighbors are always on watch for crime and safety, which is much appreciated. You can easily sell items, post for Lost Pets, or even ask for recommendations. It’s like a tight knit Craigslist + Facebook for your neighborhood! Whether you’re new to the area or a local landmark, Nextdoor can be a great way to meet your neighbors!
