Reason #127 why I love Petworth

This is the only place in the world I have lived where people say hello to me on the street. I’m not even talking about neighbors but complete strangers. This is the rule not the exception. My girlfriend had a friend visiting from NY last weekend and she was amazed by how many people said hello to us on our walk to Domku. We must have said hello to at least 5 people. It is really remarkable how friendly everybody is here.
