My neighborhood specifically is both connected and split. My mom grew up in this house that we live in now. The elders of the community have always known my mom and so therefore we are very close to a few people in the neighborhood. There are other people who've moved here throughout the years that don't seem to bother with anyone. I believe the newer generations have become more coveted anyhow, but they do not interact. Therefore, depending on who you look at, our neighborhood is either joined or disconnected. The people we are connected to are extremely generous, helpful, and nice.
