What is Nextdoor?
"Nextdoor is the private social network for your neighborhood.
It's the easiest way for you and your neighbors - and ONLY
you and your neighbors - to talk online and make all of your
lives better in the real world. And it's free."
I give away things, ask for help, send out alerts, post weird
things and so on. Sure, you can do this on Facebook, but I like
how Nextdoor organizes things and it allows me to keep some
parts of my life separated. Give
it a shot...you won't be disappointed. And be sure to use
either of the links

Participate in a Study of the Harbor!
I have been introduced to a PhD student from the New Jersey
Institute of Technology (NJIT) in environmental science and
policy who is studying Laurence Harbor. She is looking for long-term
residents (living in the area >5 years) that would be willing
to be interviewed (no longer than an hour). I did the interview;
really interesting questions. She mentioned she would love a
few President's section residents; Madison Ave, Jefferson Ave,
Monroe Ave, Lincoln Ave, Garfield Ave, Cleveland Ave, Harding
Rd, McKinley Ave, Roosevelt Ave, Wilson Ave and Bayview Drive.
She is investigating what residents think about the physical
features in the area (both built structures and natural features)
that exist to reduce coastal hazards or impact from coastal
hazards, such as flooding, erosion, and storms. I hope you will
consider participating. The goal of her research is to inform
policy decisions regarding coastal hazard mitigation. If you
would be willing to participate, you can contact her at: PhDresearcherNJIT@yahoo.com
or through her Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/DissertationResearchStudy
