What Defines 'Community' in Your Neighborhood?


What defines "community" in your neighborhood? How do you define your community? How do outsiders see your community?

"Community" can be defined by different things, depending on your perspective: "some [focus] on people, and others on details of the physical landscape such as mailboxes and fences," according to David Tinnius Rossi, a participant in the Community Story Lab.
