|dc.description.abstract||In the modern society, it is necessary to consider the neighborhood identity which plays a critical role
in socialization and human-orientation of the urban structure. The social events in residential regions
of cities which are known as the urban living cells are very determinant in residents’ liveliness.
Therefore, the current research studies the neighborhood identity and the sense of attachment in urban
residents. This research is a survey study, during which required data were collected using a
questionnaire and an interview. After data had been collected and encoded, they were analyzed with
statistical softwares. The statistical population of this study includes five municipal districts of Tehran
(i.e. Tajrish, Navvab, Moniriyeh, Rahahan and Bahar). Sample size was calculated using the Cochran
formula. Thus, 300 people were determined as the statistical population. According to the findings of
this study, the age of people is an effective factor on their attachment to their neighborhood identity.
Furthermore, those people who are more satisfied with their neighborhood have a stronger attachment
to their neighborhood identity and as a result, these neighborhoods are essentially safer. The native
inhabitants, compared to the non-natives, have a stronger attachment to the neighborhood identity.
Those who have a stronger sense of attachment to the place participate more actively in the activities
related to their neighborhood. Residents’ attachment to the neighborhood increases by the increase in
the safety of the residential areas. Besides, the satisfaction of the urban performance affects on the
attachment to the neighborhood identity. This will be effective on the increase in social interactions
and liveliness of these neighborhoods.||tr_TR
