In Brooklyn, Prospect Heights neighborhood blog Daily Heights is having none of the cute-nicknaming of the neighborhood:
No more 'ProHo.' You have been WARNED. I am putting you yuppies on NOTICE: "The name of the neighbothood is PROSPECT HEIGHTS that is it no nickname needed ... You Yuppies may have ruined downtown brooklyn, by you ain't gonna ruine Prosect Heights."But, as we know too well, cutesy neighborhood abbreviations cannot be stopped. Alternative suggestions from the Daily Heights message board: "JOOP (Just Outside Of the Park)", "ToPoSlo (Too Poor to live in Park Slope)."
