I have a Ukranian House Washer on the uphill side and a Morose Dutch Nudist on the downhill side. Not sure who is over the road as they just moved in but next to them is a large ugly woman who has (on her Mercedes) the number plate "VERY6C".

On my left are a wife (a 5th grade teacher) and a husband (forgot what he does) whose children are both in college. On my right we got some people who just came here from a farm and they're kids are out of college, IIRC. To my back is my friends house, and on the other side of the street is my mom's friend (preschool teacher) and her husband (doctor). All three of their kids are out of college.

Quoting Sabena332 (Reply 5): I have pretty nice neighbors, all of them are very friendly (e.g. everyone is greeting everyone), so far I haven't meet any asshole here.
Same here. My upstairs one above me lives with her daughter and isn't annoying. The other couple upstairs is nice as well and we frequently talk. Now when I move out; good question. Hopefully nice as the current neighbors.

My same-floor neighbors are absolutely unbelievable: they are the most rude and in-human people I've ever met. We already reported them because they were playing the piano at 11.30 pm on a Sunday night, and because they're using the building's "common space" (the floor you're supposed not to use that connects the apartments and the elevators among each other) filling it up with their stuff (shoe holders, shopping carts - yes, the ones from the stores - etc).
Oh, and when you get out of your apartment while they're also getting out, and they see you, they actually go back inside to avoid you - they don't want to talk to anyone. And if it happens that there's no way out for them (ie. if they've locked the door already, and it would look too stupid to turn back) they strictly look down to their feet and whisper a faint "hello".
They also put liquid garbage in their trash bags, which makes the floor dirty all over the place when they take their garbage out. And the janitor can clean after them.
Their kids aren't any better. I guess there must have been some trauma in that family. The building administration told us that they're getting many complaints about them and that they're thinking about "eliminating them" (I'm textually citing the administrator's words).

We have really nice neighbours. On one side is a retired couple, the husband was a national swimming coach and the wife retired as a nurse. They came from the UK in the 1970s, we get along well with them.
The other side is a B&B, run by an American couple. They are also pretty cool, we're lucky to have good neighbours.

To my left a retired family that ran one of the larger limo companies here in NY. To my right a family with moeny that I cannot figure out the source of but the husband/father is a hot headded prick with no life that never leaves the house. I feel bad for the wife. Across the street was an old couple but they recently moved south to the Carolinas. Behind me is nothing but the great south bay which does trat me well with a constant supply of fluke to be caught this time of year. In my parents house down in the 941 (SRQ) to the right is vacent as of last summer as our dear neighbor passed from lung disease. She owned a charter school though. To the left across the street is a semi retired couple who owns a pair of insurance firms though he was in the securities industry previously. Across the street from us is some sort of bank Of America VP in the area.
There is plenty of room for Gods animals, right next to the mashed potatoes!

On one side we have an Amway bigwig that we nicknamed Elvis, and his wife and two kids. They are conspicuously successful, but I figured out that they are living off the equity in their house. Every time they refinance the house they get spankin' new cars. I think they got a BMW M5 just today. They are very tacky. They have a slave, a dude who works for them eight hours a day - getting the dry cleaning, being there for deliveries, etc. It is very strange.
On the other side is a Philippino-American couple and their two kids. Great people. They worked in healthcare and now they have their own old folks' home (not at their house, at another location nearby).
Next to Elvis is an Indian-Canadian widow.
Next to her is a couple that we have never met, even though we have lived here for seven years. I've tried to wave at them a couple of times but after being ignored I don't bother any more. They keep their blinds completely shut at all times. I wonder if they have a torture dungeon in there. The guy is Canadian.
Next to them (and across the street from us, we live on a cul-de-sac) are our favourite neighbours. She is a teacher and he is a sports journalist.
Next to them is a retired NHL player and his wife and two kids. The NHL'er is, not surprisingly, Canadian.
Next to them is another couple with two kids. They have a timber company in Peru. He is Canadian as well.
There are 12 houses in our part of our street and 5 of them have Canadians living there.

One down from me, a retired couple live there, and they're great. One up from me, well, we don't ever talk to them, but lets just say at night, i wish my bedroom wasn't next to theirs. Loudness would be an understatement, and i wish his name wasn't my damn middle name. One over from us, a single older guy who has lived there for about 8 years now, and we don't even know his name. One down from him, another great set of neighbours.

I am surrounded by all these therapist/psychiatrists (if you're from BOS, I like in Cambridge, near Harvard Square/Brattle Street Area)... It's quite odd. Our neighbors like to placard our X5 with stickers saying that "SUVs SUCK!". I don't like them at all.

I think the people to the right of me are drug dealers, or they just smoke alot of weed.
I have a friend that lives 4 houses away from me to the right.
There are two families in the circle part of my court that I don't like. They're just assholes. One of the moms had to be going 50 km/h down our street once.
I don't really talk to many people on my street.
Mostly middle class families. There is a guy next door, lives by himself I think. Nothing really remarkable about anyone in my area, which is a good thing. Haven't needed the police to respond to anything in many years.

Hmm, I live behind an RV dealership off of the highway in Nicollet.... the residential areas are on the other side of the highway... my nieghbors are the raccoons and stray cats that try to get into my garbage. They run away when I open the door, so I have no problems

The neighbor to the east is a hot 40 something year old with an equally hot, yet under-aged (17) daughter and her (the hot 40 something year old) husband and son. To the west is a condomimium complex seperated from me by a fence. To the south, a couple that were ballet dancers in the local company. To the north, I have a 5 or so acre field (which, I don't own).
Others in the neighborhood: police officer, battalion chief for the fire department, doctor, teacher, 3 retired couples, pilot and assorted other trades and professions. Haven't come across a lawyer yet.
