Ask Curbed: Won't You Be My Neighbor?

Everybody knows the NY across-the-hall drop-in buddy is a sitcom myth. Or is it? A special Curbed correspondent writes,

What are your readers' views on having friendships with people in their apartment buildings? In the case of a condo, where everyone is new, were your neighbors fairly friendly? Is there a special NY attitude toward this, since we're all packed in so tightly? In my new smallish condo building neighbors are cordial but certainly keep their distance.All the good stuff in the comments.
