#CommunityWeekend: For thousands of years, our ancestors lived together.
Today, we seem to barely know our neighbors, with many activities taking place behind locked doors and high backyard fences. The street out front is not always safe for pedestrians, and nearly always off-limits for children, particularly in urban areas.
If the connection among neighbors are weak, it’s unrealistic to expect a tightly knit community of like-minded folks to develop.
Given the current climate, connecting to neighbors can seem like a daunting task. However, the good news is that vibrant communities can grow through the actions of people who live there, often without too much time, money and effort.
There are many benefits of building a neighborhood community, including creating a sense of belonging, providing a physical and mental health boost, and even lowering crime rates. With benefits like these, we could all stand to strengthen our neighborhood ties.
Below are 15 of our favorite strategies for building a neighborhood community. • Find Your Passion. • Get to know your neighbors. • Create a community garden. • Be considerate of your neighbors. • Organize a block or hallway party.
• Host a movie night. Treat the neighborhood to your favorite movie. • Welcome new families with a cup of coffee or tin of fresh baked chocolate chips cookies. • Establish a neighborhood watch program. • Host a regular monthly gathering. • Offer to shovel snow from your neighbor’s sidewalk or driveway, especially if they’re elderly or infirm. • Address concerns or issues directly with your neighbor. • Shop locally when possible. • Share your skills or expertise.
• Tell your neighbors if you’re going to be out of town and ask them to contact you or the police if anything is suspicious. • Grow your offline community online.
• Build resilience together.

These pics prove why the New Orleans Saints are a strong ass team. Take a good long look at those pics if u remember this day August 29, 2005 which anybody in New Orleans will seriously say Yes!!! For those who weren't born around that time this day was truly devastating and just scary asf. Not like a horror movie. It's beyond that meaning your city is getting destroyed for good. There was 1,833 that died in New Orleans. 300,000 people were homeless. So for those who say Saints suck and shit... rethink again at how much talent and passion they have for everyone as well as what they went through 14 years ago. They never have any drama outside their locker rooms or anything. This is a team that has worked through hard times and every year they are getting stronger and stronger. I love the community down there as well as the organization. If I lived in New Orleans holy shit I would help in a heart beat. Saints deserve to win another title for this community and for the city of New Orleans. I am a Packers fan of course but the Saints are my 2nd team cuz of This! What they have overcome this tragic event and what Brees and that team has done to this town. That is true definition of what family really is and a team that loves there city. #hurricanekatrina#neworleans#neworleanssaints#football#city#rebuilding#family#redcross#salvationarmy#scary#moments#motivation#superbowl#passion#help#grow#fans#recovery#rough#naturaldisasters#hurricane#weather#people#friends#neighbors#homes#sports#stadiums#saints#life
Today we’re grateful for...the first in-person sale of our Green Thumbs fundraiser t-shirt. The purchase was made by Nate the Neighbor, who lives one floor above us with his wife & 3-year-old son. Except they’re moving to Burlingame, CA tomorrow. Damn. We were just getting to know you. Nate used to teach AP History at a private school in Staten Island. So when he gave me his detailed analysis of the first three episodes of Green Thumbs, his opinion was most appreciated. If you see him wearing this shirt in California, feel free to chat him up. The man’s good conversation. Good luck, neighbor! Hope the grass is greener in Cali. 💚👍 #365daysofgratitude#day19#neighbors#brooklyn#greenthumbstheseries#greenthumbs#listening#RealLifeListening
Being a #milso (military significant other) has it’s ups and downs, but one of the more difficult things to come across that no one can prepare you for is the friends that you’ll hopefully make, but then unfortunately, because of relocation, have to leave behind. I have been beyond fortunate to make a few good friends while @kenpachibruno has been in the military, but this is with a lot of effort. Too often I see a ton of posts asking that this person needs friends, but that’s it. There’s no effort put it. Yes, sometimes there is an instant chemistry click and other times, it takes work. Well, I dedicate this post to @paigehays1346. She and her husband are our neighbors and are the most genuine people that my family and I have met in a long time! There is no doubt in my mind that we won’t have a long lasting friendship and I am forever grateful!! #milso#militarylife#newfriends#neighbors#fortunate#friends#grateful#gamenight#goodtimes
IC 342: The Hidden Galaxy
Similar in size to large, bright spiral galaxies in our neighborhood, IC 342 is a mere 10 million light-years distant in the long-necked, northern constellation Camelopardalis. A sprawling island universe, IC 342 would otherwise be a prominent galaxy in our night sky, but it is hidden from clear view and only glimpsed through the veil of stars, gas and dust clouds along the plane of our own Milky Way galaxy. Even though IC 342's light is dimmed and reddened by intervening cosmic clouds, this sharp telescopic image traces the galaxy's own obscuring dust, young star clusters, and glowing pink star forming regions along spiral arms that wind far fromthe galaxy's core. IC 342 may have undergone a recent burst of star formation activity and is close enough to have gravitationally influenced the evolution of the local group of galaxies and the Milky Way. #cosmos#unbelievable#space#nasa#neighbors#galaxy#universe#stars#like#share#follow#protectthesecrets#nasa#isro#esa#success#movingforward#findings#sky#image#night#starynight#beauty
