We suggest that the seven radio-quiet isolated neutron stars observed with ROSAT are young cooling objects associated to recent near-by supernova explosions which formed runaway stars and the Local Bubble, affecting the topology of the interstellar medium in the vicinity of the Sun within a few hundred parsecs. In the aftermath of these explosions, a few black holes might have been formed, according to the local initial mass function. We thus discuss the possibility of determining approximate positions of close-by isolated black holes using data on runaway stars and simple calculations of binary evolution and disruption.
