Impossible these days.

Someone new moved in on our floor on the opposite side 3 months ago and I still haven't met them.

Don't go crazy & buy a bunch of stuff, before you know what you need. Check out the thrift stores, you can get a few cheap pots to cook in. Many apartments forbid hanging anything on a wall, so get cheap shelves, or a floor lamp with shelves to display any photos or art you want to see.

First, congratulations!

But surely you're the one who knows best what you need to buy. Also, figure out what your parents can provide.

You might consider rugs, though, to be considerate to your neighbors downstairs.

Exactly how would you do that?

"Excuse me, sir, I hope you don't mind a total stranger knocking at your door, but I'm wondering if you could tell me if you smoke, if you have dogs that bark or howl, if you have any small children, if you fight with whomever you live, and what kind of music you like and when you play hot?"

LMFAO!!!

Why do I feel like that's a skit that would be on Seinfeld or Curb your Enthusiasm.

Neighborhood, yes.

But neighbors...eh. I work. I've had neighbors move in while at work and didn't know. Only realized they lived there when they are chilling in front of the building.

Now if you live in a building that has proper move in and move out hours maybe vetting neighbors can happen. You can stop, have some small talk.

Congrats and best wishes!!!!
