What I learned about my neighborhood by being home 24/7

Updated: Mar 8, 2021

Being home all the time means I'm learning a lot more about the nuances of my neighborhood. I'm here to see — and hear — it all. Here are nine things I've noticed.

The mail schedule, pigeons, local gossip, a beer counter, exterminator visits, tacos, and outdoor gym, great music, dogs.
What I've learned about my neighborhood by being here all the time.
  1. The mail carrier slams the slots and it is SO loud. The apartment basically shakes every day at 11 am. Or 3 pm, they really aren't on a consistent schedule.

  2. This summer on my daily walks, I noticed that down the street a man feeds the pigeons. I tried to avoid him.

  3. On the other side of the street, there's a tight gossip circle.

  4. The beer counter serves coffee and pastries every morning. Apparently this isn't new, but it's new to an at-home me!

  5. An exterminator comes to my apartment every Thursday. I never knew that happened.

  6. There are so many tacos to choose from. I'm judging them all on Yelp. (see below)

  7. There's an outdoor park gym around the corner. I'm going to pretend I didn't see it.

  8. My neighbors jammed out all summer and I loved it.

  9. I'm getting to know all the dogs and still not getting my own. Although I'm VERY tempted.
