How to boost your neighborhood street cred and give good couple PR.
Get yourself a dog, walk it as a couple and find other dog-owning folks to walk with or meet up with at a park.
Host a cocktail party at your home and invite all your neighbors. This is an especially good idea when moving into a new 'hood.
Join volunteer groups with couples on your street or colleagues from work.
Hold a garage sale -- they always bring the neighborhood together!
Join any couple-friendly groups that you both have an interest in. For example, try a running club that meets regularly.
Put together a charity event or fundraiser and inform local newspapers about it in order to get media attention for the charity (and you as a couple).
Be gracious and open when meeting others at events.
If the neighbor has kids, suggest a play date at your house so they can relax for an afternoon while you babysit
