Welcome to Lettertown!

Good thread on Gawker this afternoon on two Bushwick residents referring to their neighborhood now as "BillyWick" or "BushBurg."

Sarcasto had a funny suggestion (one that I hope some developer or real-estate baron doesn't notice!).

Totally missed this thread. I would have suggested yunnietown for the EV; Vapid Hill for Murray Hill; Gentrifiedvania for LES.

People who refer to eastern EV as Alphabet City, invariably, are tourists and/or originally from Shaker Heights, Ohio.

Hey Grieve, are you (or your SO) EasyEVG at Gawker?

I'll take that as a yes.

Hi anonymous...sorry for the tardy response...I've noticed the EasyEVG name before at Gawker -- that's not me. A lawsuit is forthcoming -- because I'm not all that easy!

Well, most of those gawkers are lawyers, so you better be prepared. Prepare to be doc reviewed (i'm sure that's what all the lawyering they do).
