Do you have neighborhood shame?

Developers aren’t the only with an expansive sense of neighborhood boundaries.    Plenty of New Yorkers take geographic liberties to associate their own 'hood with an enviable—or at least recognizable—neighborhood...such as:

  • "High Line" =  26th and 11th Ave
  • "Park Slope" = 4th Avenue and 16th Street
  • "32nd & 2nd" = Murray Hill
  • "Upper West Side" = Broadway & 113th
  • "Gramercy Park" = Peter Cooper Village
  • "Chelsea" = 30th and 12th Avenue
  • "Tribeca" = Lafayette and White
  • "East Village" = StuyTown
  • "Prospect Park Heights" = Crown Heights
  • “The Gold Coast”= Sixth Ave and West 4th Street
  • "Williamsburg" = Bushwick
  • "Morningside Heights" = 108th & Amsterdam
  • "Upper East Side" = Fifth Ave and 110th
  • "Far UES" = Norwalk, CT
