Why I Love my Neighborhood

By S.A., Key Largo

I love my neighborhood because of the people. I hear children playing games outdoors. I greet neighbors walking and riding bikes and pushing strollers, I smell grills warming up in the evening.

I love that the houses are all shapes and sizes and are a little willy-nilly, as is the landscaping. One neighbor has a storied past and lives in a real eye-sore! But he has helped me when no one else offered, and he is always polite and quiet, in spite of looking a bit scary.

My backyard is the Sanctuary Property, a hardwood hammock and private, except for all the butterflies, birds, squirrels, and occasional opossum. I wake to birdsong every morning. There are some iguana, which make for lots of excitement when my dog sees one.

I live within walking distance to the heart of Key Largo and would not need a car if I didn’t want to have one.  I love that my neighborhood has people who speak more than one language and share their phone numbers and exotic foods with me. I love that the New Yorker, who just bought the house two doors down to eventually retire in, lives within 15 minutes of my daughter, who just moved to New York.  I love that the house right next door belongs to a family who has become my family, too, and was responsible for my 10 pound weight gain when I first moved in.

What I love about my neighborhood? It’s the people.
