On Google Maps and Neighborhood Names

Emails an alert tipster, "Has anyone noticed that Google Maps now has neighborhood names? (you have to be 3 or 4 bars zoomed out). Apparently, they've decided that the only neighborhoods in Manhattan worth pointing out on a map are Greenwich Village, Chinatown, Harlem, Inwood and Washington Heights. And for some reason, Prospect Heights has been renamed Adelphi." The conspiracy deepens. Theories?
