LOL  That was good.  I dont really know my neighbors, but they seem pretty normal.  Middle aged couple with school aged children.

LOL. Sounds like it’s party all the time up in there.

Our neighborhood is pretty tight. I like them all, and they are all mostly normal although some are a tad snooty.

Well we live on a dead end with a farm on one side (no homes) and one other home on the other side. We do know the people in the home, we invite them to our parties and they invite us to theirs. We also help each other out when we can. They are very nice people though in a bit of a different place in life (have two small kiddos). As for the farmer, we see him visiting the horses and he sometimes stops and talks as well, though I guess, he’s not a neighbor since he doesn’t technically live there!

I know the neighbors on one side smoke a lot of pot. I also know that only his name (lets call him Dave) is on the lease, that he cheats on, lets call her Kimmie, and that he gave Kimmie HPV and now she can’t have kids. They still have loud sex in the mornings (so unpleasant to dress to), but luckily it doesn’t last very long.

Their fights are epic. She moved in with him 3 years ago…I kind of want to tell her “Dude, he isn’t going to marry you, so stop arguing about committment! He doesn’t want any!” I saw them in the elevator a few months back, Kimmie was gushing over a neighbor’s baby, Dave looked disinterested.

I am really hoping they break up so we can buy their apartment and break down the wall….

Haha nice. We know our neighbors because they are my in-laws. The one’s we’re not related to we know by what pets they have. We’re all always returning dogs, cats and chickens to each other…

I live in an apartment building in NYC.  I know that there’s two guys next door to me that do something akin to bowling each evening.  They play loud hip hop, but turn it off by 8 or so, so I don’t care.

The girls that live below me are the loudest most annoying people ever.  Also, they put their trash indoors with the recycling when it clearly goes outdoors. 

I don’t know anyone else, but I’ve only lived here for a few months.

@Rubies: Your neighbors are hilarious:)

We are all pretty close. We live on a culd de sac and our kids play outside together almost everyday. We have bonfires at night in the summer and card nights at each others houses. We are really lucky to have such a great group, if there is an emergeny we always have someone around to help out.

This April will be 4 years in our current condo and we don’t know a single neighbor. I’ve thought about trying to organize a meet and greet but then I remembered that I don’t really give a shit about these people.

I don’t really know my neighbors. I know there is an Asian couple who live directly above us and stomp around at all hours of the night (seriously, the girl must be 100lbs soaking wet, I have no idea how she stomps that loudly). Partially above us is a man who is in the middle of a midlife crisis. He drives a Camaro and is always blasting some sort of hip hop music while driving through our complex.

We live in a triplex, so a house with each floor being an aparment. Downstairs lives a 70-ish Italian grandma, and upstairs is her brother (“Uncle Tony”). He’s pretty quiet, but she is crazy! She has a super yappy Jack Russel that barks ALL THE TIME, usually starting up around 6AM. She is always yelling – yelling at the dog, yelling on the phone, yelling at Uncle Tony. It’s nuts.

She always pokes her head out her door when we come home and yells at us in Italian – she thinks she’s speaking English but she’s really not. And she’s not usually mad when she yells at us – usually it’s to give us some home-made wine or a cucumber. So random!

Apparently it could be worse, though. The people who lived here before us had a kid and she would come upstairs all the time to see how the ‘baby’ was doing. Seems much more meddlesome than just peeking out her door at us!

We’ve lived in our condo 3 years and we don’t know any of our neighbours. Person on our right drops stuff in their kitchen area (I think?) all the time. People on the left are super annoying and their dog is really loud and barks early in the morning/all day!!!!

It’s been a long time since I lived in an apartment, but the people above me used to “throw dice” across the floor. Honestly, NO IDEA what they would be doing up until 2 am, but it seriously sounded like they were thowing yatzee dice across the floor. It was weird. In that same apartment the guy to my right was a biker with tattoos and crazy hair and a chihuahua hehe. The guy across the hall I only ever saw once when I had to move my couch in and needed to manuever through his apartment. It was so smoky you couldn’t see three feet in.

We live in a developing townhome community, so every couple of months there is a new row of homes and a bunch of new neighbors to meet. We do HOA meetings every couple of months so we’re all familiar with eachother’s faces. For the most part we’re all friendly with eachother, except for the people who live directly beside us and the older couple from GA that live beside them on the end… The older couple feeds raccoons and it’s caused a bit of animosity amongst the people who live in our row. Other than that it’s fine.
