“My son turned 2 this summer and walked home from a party store near our house with balloons for the party. A few neighbors asked what they were for and my husband invited them to stop over if they could. Two neighbors came by after the party was over each with a card and a gift for my son. I love our block.”
Ed. Note: We hear a lot about crime in certain neighborhoods. This is the other side of the coin. If you have a story/experience from your own mean streets please send a brief description in an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dog)com and include what neighborhood you live in.
