Consider several states in a neighbourhood; in order to preserve peace between these states, it is necessary they should be formed into a balance. Jonathan Swift.
Neighbourhood is a song by Space, written by band members Tommy Scott and Franny Griffiths, and released as the second single (though the band prefer it to be the first, as they consider "Money"/"Kill Me" to be a "test" release) from their debut album Spiders, and their third single altogether. It was originally released on 25 March 1996 and peaked at #56 in the UK charts, but it was later re-released on 21 October that year, this time peaking at #11. In Australia, "Neighbourhood" entered the ARIA top 100 singles chart on 9 February 1997 at #90, its peak. "Neighbourhood" peaked at #22 in New Zealand in March 1997. The lyrics to "Neighbourhood" were partially inspired by frontman Tommy Scott's upbringing in the Liverpool housing estate Cantril Farm (which has since been reestablished as Stockbridge Village), yet it stays true to the band's twisted sense of humour by depicting a variety of somewhat warped personalities including a man who thinks he's Saddam Hussein, Mr Miller, a "local vicar and a serial killer," a "big butch queen" who's "bigger than Tyson and twice as mean," and others. The lyrical style has eighties dub reggae & sound system deejay influences.
In a topological context, a neighbourhood is a set that includes a particular point and an open set surrounding that point. In a common context, a neighbourhood is a distinct, often residential, area within a town or city characterized by similar types of housing or people, and often defined by geographical or municipal boundaries.
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."
