During a debate on the Daily Heights forum about the worthiness of ProHo as a neighborhood abbreviation for Prospect Heights ("It probably won't end up on any maps or documents, like Soho. But it can end up on your chest, if you attend the Happy Hour!"), one poster shares an epiphany:
Along the same lines, I've been thinking of calling the area where Clinton Hill, Bed-Stuy and Prospect Heights meets (like centered around Classon Ave) "Clinton's Bed". It works on so many levels and is so inherently dumb that I love it "I live in Clinton's Bed"-"whose bed?". Think of it as real estate satire.Genius.
