Is there a single word or common expression like homie, roomie, fellow citizen for someone who lives in your neighborhood? I think neighbor can be used just for those that live just next to you or next door while neighborhood could be quite big. Am I right? Is so, what's the word?
Edit: The reason I'm asking this is that in my native language we have a word that the rough translation of it is "same-neighbourhoodie (person)". I know it's awkward in English :). He might live a block away for example. We call people who live next door something else that I always thought it's neighbor.
