Automatic Neighborhood is an optional feature that is ON by default when you sign up for Path (if location services are enabled on your phone).
Each time you launch Path, this feature checks which neighborhood you are in. If you have changed neighborhoods since the last time you launched the app, your new neighborhood location will automatically post to your Path. A neighborhood is often more granular than city level but not as granular as street location.
You can turn this feature OFF in the app settings, or through the web setting page at path.com/settings.
