Your front stoop or porch can be a great place to spend some time (albeit uncomfortable in the dead of a cold New England winter). You can meet your neighbors, get some fresh (or polluted) city air, and sometimes, even see some pretty interesting events take place. This is a how-to guide to help you sit or stand and enjoy the space right out your front door.
Simply sitting outside and watching what goes on helps you to get more in touch with your neighborhood. I have personally gotten to know what cars or bikes belong to who, who lives in what house. Faces will become familiar to you, and you will become a familiar face (just don't sit there ALL day, or people will start to wonder about you).
For this how-to guide, you will need:
-The space just beyond your front door
-A chair if you want, but not necessary
