Since the coronavirus pandemic refigured our lives, the sounds, rhythms and sights of our neighborhoods have changed too.

In some cases, it’s a matter of noticing things we may have not been around to observe before. Residents in some neighborhoods reported more wildlife sightings in the spring; scientists pointed out, however, that the coyote trotting by every morning has likely always been there. But other residents may be getting entirely different experiences out of their neighborhood due to the pandemic. Mutual aid programs have strung up for residents to reach elderly or at-risk neighbors, and some neighborhoods have organized on social media to make sure the community’s needs are being met. All throughout Los Angeles, we can feel our city changing. What has it been like in your neighborhood?

We want to hear your experience. What kinds of changes have you observed in your neighborhood since the COVID-19 pandemic hit? Share with us in the comments or give us a call at 866-893-5722.
