EveryBlock brings neighbors with common interests togetherOct042012
Are you looking to meet more neighbors on your block, but don’t know how to get started? Share your interests with neighbors on EveryBlock, such as running or reading, to start a group offline.
Book clubs can be a fun way to get to know people in your neighborhood, while a fitness club can help everyone get fit together.
Just last week, a South Philly neighbor named Steph posted a message on EveryBlock to ask if there were any local book clubs she could join or if any neighbors were interested in starting one. She got a number of helpful and interested responses from several neighbors excited to start a book club together.
This week, another South Philly neighbor named Mark posted to find out if anyone was interested in starting a running club. A few neighbors have already joined in on the conversation, sharing their current speed and distance achievements, as they are interested in joining in on a regular group running schedule.
Get to know your neighbors by starting an activity-based group in your neighborhood! Post a neighbor message to see who might be interested and once your group has established a meeting time and place, add an event to the EveryBlock community calendar so others can attend.
