According to David, his neighborhood feels “the way neighborhoods used to be.” However, crime has recently been on the rise, with several neighbors reporting startling thefts. One neighbor had a car stolen from the parking spot directly in front of her home, and another had his car stolen right out of his driveway.
“By sharing that information with people you may not know face to face, in a neighborhood that’s as active as ours – it builds protection,” said another neighbor.
Thanks to neighbors taking action and using Nextdoor, Virginia Highlands is making strides in helping to keep their community safe.
