if you go to SPARKPAGES under the COMMUNITY tab there is an option for
SparkPage Search/Buddy Finder
click on ADVANCED SEARCH and enter your info
then hit the SEARCH button
it will return the result of the search with some dates of the sparkpage members so you can see how recent they are. then maybe you can friend them and see if you're compatible and make plans to get together. I entered my old neighborhood 10463 and got a bunch of hits.
