In the famous words of Mr. Rogers, "won't you be my neighbor?"

September 28th was National Neighbor Day and because of this, released a study of the most neighborly cities in America.  The list consisted of 25 cities across America, including our very own Grand Rapids, the only Michigan city to make the list.

Grand Rapids ranked 14th of the 25 cities that made the list right behind Harrisburg, Pennsylvania and ahead of Bridgeport, Connecticut. "looked at important factors like charitable giving and volunteering," and they also "scoured the internet for new factors to consider, including which cities are the happiest."

Here's what had to say about why Grand Rapids was ranked 14th on the list: "Grand Rapids improved in this year’s rankings, after coming in at #20 last year. A big part of the rise? How happy people are in Grand Rapids, the 12th happiest city in the country."
