By the time we got home, though, two of our neighbors had taken it upon themselves to cut the tree into usable firewood. “Neighbors in America tend to like and care for each other,” says Improvenet, a contractor-matching service, after recently polling 2,500 people. “Many spend time socializing, and most are quick to offer a helping hand.”More than two-thirds of those surveyed have gotten to know their neighbors better during the pandemic. Almost that many have made an effort to be more friendly than usual, and nearly 7 in 10 say they appreciate their neighbors more than ever. During the pandemic, 67% have offered aid of some sort to their neighbors, and 62% say they’ve received the same in return.
