Designed to reach those who are feeling especially isolated, Neighborline is a daily phone call that connects people on the line at random for a friendly chat.

Neighborline creates an opportunity for spontaneous conversations in an isolated, challenging time. Dial the number daily at 3pm to connect to people on the line at random for a friendly chat. It was designed to be an open, low tech solution to bringing a bit of cheer to anyone who might be feeling isolated. With so much of our social lives being sustained online, we wanted to build a bridge to those in our community left behind by technology. But it's also for anyone who misses impromptu exchanges or is burnt out from their screens. Like the 7pm cheer, it’s so important to have something in the day to look forward to. At the moment, Neighborline is serving New York. We hope Neighborline can be a model for other areas around the country and the world. We’re providing all the documentation for Neighborline to inspire others to replicate, reimagine, and rediscover the magic of a good, old-fashioned phone call.
