Avoid dinner, breakfast and early mornings unless they're already up and outside and when they're getting in their car. Usually, if someone is leaving or coming home, they have an agenda and plan and don't necessarily appreciate the interruption.
The New Neighbor
If you go back to what you noticed about your neighbor you can start there. So if you see your neighbor scrambling into her van with two girls in tow, one with a baseball glove and the other in a tutu, then you could approach your neighbor and ask about community softball for your child or where your child might take ballet lessons. No problem. There's absolutely nothing wrong with just walking up to the front door, and introducing yourself or inviting them to a small get together.
Let them know you just moved in and where you moved from. If that still feels uncomfortable, then ask about garbage pick up or recycling centers in the neighborhood. Remember, while you think you might not have anything in common, you do: you live on the same street, in the same neighborhood. That's enough to start any conversation.
FOOD & DRINK
From Ryan : This cartoon focuses on two neighbors: Donald, the new neighbor and Pete, Donald's next door neighbor. Pete is willing to take advantage of the new neighbor by using any of his things, whether they be food or his garden tools. I enjoy the climax of this cartoon, the battle between neighbors. This ending, which, I will not give away, has somewhat of a twist to it.

That's enough to start any conversation. While it might be the last thing you want to do while you're still unpacking , hosting a casual get-together is a great way to meet your neighbors all at the same time.
If the weather is nice, host it outside.
