Like living in a Norman Rockwell painting

I too have mentioned to other people the Norman Rockwell character of many New Orleans neighborhoods:

For the first time in my life, I live in a real neighborhood, one where the residents do more than merely make eye contact with each other. Our little block is a real community where people know a lot about each other, not because they’re nosy, but because like most New Orleanians, they are naturally friendly and they genuinely care how you’re doing.
