Amy says: When you share a living space with other people (through a shared entrance or adjoining apartments), the protocol is to notify your immediate neighbors that you will be having a party and ask them to excuse, in advance, any inconvenience or noise your shindig might cause.

If you are planning a small gathering there is no requirement to put your neighbors on notice, nor should you feel obligated to invite anyone you don’t want to share your special evening with — a neighbor or not. Healthy boundaries make good neighbors.
