At the intersection of Neat and BAWWWWWW in Prospect Heights sits the Little Free Library, one of those good-faith-in-your-fellow-neighbors community swapping posts. The box has been there since May and has been a hit with residents. It’s pretty simple: bring a book, take a book, don’t throw up in the box or anything else jerk-ish.  “It’s a marker of the increasing friendliness. It offsets some of the new, young commerce,” a longtime neighborhood resident told The Times. “It’s real and it’s humble.” Read the whole story here.

The Little Free Library is at 185 St. Mark’s Ave.
