Good Fences Make Good Neighbors

When I was little, everyone on our street was good friends and we kids used to always play at each others' houses and in the street (yes, in the street). One particular game of note was volleysoccer (our own creation). The parents were all good friends too. Since about 7 or 8 years ago, basically all of those old neighbors have moved away and we don't really know any of the newer ones well. The people next door on the one side seem nice, but I must say that it doesn't exactly make the neighborhood look classy when you have enough cars parked on your front lawn to make it look like a small parking lot and a statue of the Virgin Mary in the garden flanked by two Confederate flags in the windows.
