Research by Trulia found that the majority of Americans (63%) described their relationships with their neighbors as friendly, with 10% considering themselves to be very close or best friends with their neighbors. Staffer Cheryl Young takes a look at the relationships between Americans with their neighbors which shows that 68% of Americans griped about their pet peeves despite the majority being friendly.

This is not surprising given that millennials are younger and tend not to own their home at this stage of their lives. Millennials, for example, comprise a much higher share of renters (52%) than Gen Xers (37%) and baby boomers (22%), which likely suggests they are living in closer quarters with others and may be more susceptible to neighborly annoyances.
