The lady next door in san jose
Sarah Leary, co-founder and vice president of marketing and operationsat Nextdoor, poses at her office in the landmark Phelan Building inSan Francisco, Calif. Chances are, in the digital age where more of our friends live on Facebook than in our communities, you never have. But Sarah Leary remembers the neighborhood of her youth, where people looked out for each other — not just their baking needs, but their children, homes and property. It was this nostalgia that inspired Leary to start Nextdoor, a private social network for neighborhoods. More than 57, neighborhoods have joined the social network.
The Girl Next Door
Q&A: Nextdoor co-founder Sarah Leary, on building safer neighborhoods – The Mercury News
When I first joined Nextdoor, the hyperlocal social networking site in , I was charmed by neighbors in my East Bay suburb rallying to help one another find lost cats and dogs.

And, then Nextdoor becomes like any social network, with all the good and bad that comes from giving people a venue to let their free expression fly from the remote isolation of their laptops and smartphones. Sometimes logging onto Nextdoor is enough to make me wonder: Do I really live in the same town as some of these people? For a long time, I thought I shared the same geography with people who were educated, compassionate and open-minded on public policy and social issues.
Estuary next door - Review of Holiday Inn Resort Los Cabos All-Inclusive
Visited Holiday Inn Resort for the 4th time in Febuary. We like the laid back atmosphere of this resort. It is right next to the Estuary which is great for watching wildlife. Hundreds of different species of birds and waterfowl. There is a hiking trail which is rather rough but worth the walk.
Every once in awhile, Rose Martinez opens the nightstand drawer and pulls out her diary to remind herself of who she used to be. But it was me back then. She is sitting in a small room on a comfortable club chair reserved for counseling at Next Door Solutions to Domestic Violence , a San Jose nonprofit that empowers survivors of abuse and helps them recover. Martinez was nervous to tell her story at first. What would people think of her staying with that man for so long before finally leaving him for good?
