Host a housewarming party - be sure to drop an invitation off with each of your neighbors. Everything from grilling to yard games will encourage people to drop by. You might even post about the gathering in online neighborhood groups.
Be in your front yard - a lot. Work on your flowers, play with the dog, throw a ball with the kids, or even just read. Basically, anything that offers an opportunity to interact with people in your new neighborhood.
It can be easier to get to know people through your kids or pets. Playgrounds or dog parts are great for meeting other community members.
Keep an eye out for events going on in your neighborhood: The local community center might host a bingo night, or the local library could offer arts and crafts or a book club. Check out regularly scheduled community offerings like farmers markets, as well.
