Neighborhood Acronymn Alert: HoBo

Following up on this week's terrifying map of the Bowery below Houston, a Curbed reader emails:

i'm moving into 195 bowery in the spring, so i have some interest in that area.....that area called, called what? you heard it here first: HoBo. "HoBo" stands for Houston and Bowery, which describes the transition of the Bowery into luxe apartments (Chrystie Avalon Place and 195 Bowery, etc.) but you can't hide that fact that everyone who lives there is a hobo, from the new condo owners to the bowery mission people.
Hmmm. Perhaps reports of the death of the Bowery haven't been exaggerated enough.
