Have you ever heard of "Nextdoor" ?

Nextdoor is a free private social network for your neighborhood, which is the best way to stay in the know about what’s going on in your neighborhood—whether it’s finding a last-minute babysitter, learning about an upcoming block event, or hearing about a rash of car break-ins. There are so many ways our neighbors can help us, we just need an easier way to connect with them.
