I live in the West End of Hartford and really love my neighborhood. The houses are charming, unique, and have great history behind them. We can walk to excellent restaurants and downtown Hartford is just a short bike or bus ride away. The roses at Elizabeth Park are about to bloom and free evening concerts will be starting in June. There are so many reasons that I love where I live.
There is one group of neighbors though, that really celebrates their block and have a strong sense of community. The first block of Kenyon Street created a website that outlines the history of their block and all of the fantastic activities that they participate in throughout the year. It’s a unique occurrence these days to see neighbors so involved with each other, and I think they should be commended.
How do you go about building a sense of community in your neighborhood?
