Add a neighborhood to the Connect to Server dialog Network
From the Finder if you go to Connect to Server (Command-K) and type in Command-N, it will bring up a screen that will allow you to Add a Neighborhood to your browsing list. There doesn't seem to be a Menu option for this, or a way to delete it (at least not in the Connect to Server interface), unless you Cancel and start over.

I found this with my third mouse button set up to open new documents (Command-N) and accidently hit it when the Connect to Server window was up. I couldn't find any documentation on it ... so I thought it might be useful to someone.

What is *censored*

I'm not exactly sure WHY you would want to add a neighborhood. Since it's an undocumented option, with no other way to get to it without using Command + N, it could possibly be a glimpse of things to come from Apple.

I've also noticed if you add a new neighborhood called "work" it will automatically add SMB (on my machine anyway...does anyone get any thing different?) that when clicked on gives you all your neighborhoods minus you local system. Again...not super useful.

I would be interested to find if someone comes up with a use for it...

SMB workgroups

It handles SMB workgroups. Say you had a laptop setup at home with a workgroup ("HOME") and you take it in to work, where there's a different workgroup or domain ("CORPORATE"). You can enter this name to browse the systems in it.

I knew that you can add a SMB workgroup and WINS server through the Directory Access utility. Adding them using command +n from the Connect to Server window seems to add these listings too. How do you get rid of them?
