Sometimes in order to break the ice with a new neighbor, all you need is small talk. Simply start up a conversation asking about how they like the area, where they are from, or even suggest some of your favorite places to visit or eat around the neighborhood. They will appreciate the advice, and it will make them more comfortable in a new area. If your neighbors have been living there for a while, small talk is still important. Stopping by for a quick chat over the fence or asking them over for coffee is a nice gesture that they will most likely appreciate.
