Neighborhood Watch good investment

“Good fences make good neighbors,” declares the neighbor in Robert Frost’s poem “The Mending Wall.”

And while the issue in the poem is an old-fashioned rock wall, there are plenty of present-day “barriers” that tend to keep us from knowing our neighbors like we once did. Among them: more time spent on social media than in actual conversation, schedules filled to the max with activities and changing neighborhood dynamics.
