    "Diversity of backgrounds, commonality of values. We raise our kids together in this neighborhood, we celebrate each other’s wins and losses. We come out to catch up in the middle of the street on weeknight evenings and weekend afternoons, and we plan events like July 4th together, since the city fireworks show is part of an evening stroll around our block.
