Examples

  • It’s really neighborhoody, which is nice in terms of morale; there’s something great to be said for going to work in an area where you can actually enjoy taking a stroll during an afternoon break, or have a leisurely outdoor lunch, as opposed to bumping into a thousand people while walking down just one city block.

  • Greenpoint is neighborhoody – but not in a small-town way, in a big-city, multicultural, mind-your-own-business way.

  • It wasn't a super-neighborhoody, hang-out-on-the-street-with-all-the-kids kind of neighborhood for one thing, there were apartments at the end of the street, but a bunch of the families knew each other, well, forever.
