To be nosy.
Gina sure is nebby. She is always getting into my business.
Possible origin: Root word Neb means beak or similar protrusion from the head. Neb nose is also a term with the same meaning as nebby. Therefore a Nebby neb nose is always poking his/her "beak" where it shouldn't be.

Nosy. Most common usage in the Pittsburgh metro. Possible origin: derived from "neighborly," but since the connotation was negative, the pronunciation was distorted to indicate this.

Common slang in Pittsburgh. Means to be "nosey", poking into other people's business. It's derived from Old English neb, a bird's beak. Related to nib, the fountain pen tip that's shaped like a bird's beak. To be nebby is to be continuously poking around, exploring, as a bird does. Related Pittsburghese includes neb-nose and neb-shit.
I wouldn't keep that ring in your dresser drawer. You know how nebby she is.

"Nebby" is the Yiddish slang for "dorky". There is an entry before this under "nebbish" and the person wrote that it came from Hebrew. This is a common mistake, however, "nebby/nebbish" is proudly Yiddish.
I went to synagogue yesterday and all that was left over were the nebby 40-year-old guys.
