  1. Neighbourhood

    A neighbourhood or neighborhood is a geographically localised community within a larger city, town, suburb or rural area. Neighbourhoods are often social communities with considerable face-to-face interaction among members. "Researchers have not agreed on an exact definition. Neighbourhood is generally defined spatially as a specific geographic area and functionally as a set of social networks. Neighbourhoods, then, are the spatial units in which face-to-face social interactions occur – the personal settings and situations where residents seek to realise common values, socialise youth, and maintain effective social control."

Examples of neighbourhood in a Sentence

  1. Hisham Abdul Wahab:

    Some people began returning to the neighbourhood, but the strikes began again and now they're leaving a second time. The place is devastated: there are no roads, no water and no electricity. Nobody's left but thieves.

  2. Eleanor Roosevelt:

    Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home—so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any map of the world. Yet they are the world of the individual person: The neighbourhood he lives in; the school or college he attends; the factory, farm or office where he works. Such are the places where every man, woman and child seeks equal justice, equal opportunity, equal dignity without discrimination. Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere. Without concerted citizen action to uphold them close to home, we shall look in vain for progress in the larger world.

  3. Henry C. Blinn:

    Mistakes live in the neighbourhood of truth and therefore delude us.

  4. Animesh Roul:

    Now the country (Maldives) is witnessing a state of Emergency and former President and Supreme Court Judge were arrested, India should act fast for its citizens including tourists and expatriates (health care professionals and educators) stranded in that volatile quagmire.' Having said that, India is not in a position to carry out an Operation Cactus (Nov. 1988) type intervention as those times were different. Now bigger players are involved in Maldives affairs (read China) and India should be more cautious in its approach. We are not expecting to make another Nepal in Maldives, as far as our neighbourhood diplomatic ties are concern.

  5. Detective Superintendent Julie Mackay:

    This is a very serious incident in which a woman has lost her life and we are deploying family liaison officers to support the next of kin, the scene remains cordoned off so further forensic enquiries and searches can take place over the next few days. We're grateful to the local community for their support and understanding, and I'd urge anyone with concerns or questions to speak to a member of the local neighbourhood team who'll be carrying out extra patrols over the coming days.
