Where We Live: A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood
What makes a good neighbor?
After the recent news of a Connecticut man who attempted to set off a bomb in Times Square, we heard a lot from his neighbors.
They said he was a “quiet, normal man” and that “he kept to himself”. They didn’t know much about alleged bomber, although he had lived next door for years.
Today, where we live, in a society that values independence and personal space – what is the role of a “neighbor”?
We’ll talk to a journalist who spent the night at his neighbors houses to get to know them better – and a writer who values his neighborhood in New Haven.
What makes a good neighbor? Is it time to tear down our “good fences”?
