Having neighbors can be a blessing as well as a curse. My neighbors are, to say the least, interesting. They are really nice, so I did luck out. But still…there are questionable moments.
It’s fairly safe to say that over the pandemic most of us got to know our neighbors quite a bit better. While some communities are far from nice, others are all smiles and helping hands. Two North Carolina cities made the top 10 list of most neighborly communities.
In a recent report by StorageCafe, 11,000 people were surveyed from across the US to find out the cities that best embody the neighborly spirit. They based their survey on four essential factors that pretty much epitomize what it means to be a good neighbor: satisfaction with neighbors, sense of community, involvement in community activities, and willingness to recommend their neighborhood to others.
You’re likely to have neighbors who look out for you if you live in Raleigh, whether they do you a favor now and then or volunteer in the community. Raleigh is ranked fifth in its ability to foster good neighborliness. And it’s not the only North Carolina city to make the top 10 list – Charlotte also ranked 10th.
