Alan I doubt that you really meant to imply that ALL non cohousing neighborhoods are hostile places as you describe. Certainly some (many? ) are but traditional neighborhoods range on a scale of cooperativeness. Also the people any given neighborhood vary in their cooperativeness. Cohousing is unique in that virtually all residents are self-selected for their desire to live in a cooperative neighborhood and cohousers are very experienced in discussing and resolving problems but to imply that cohousing has a monopoly on congenial neighborhoods is an exageration. Despite rain immediately before and at the end of the evening our neighborhood National Night Out had a good turnout last night. Fred -- Fred H.
