Circle the Wagons: RAMBO Under Attack!!!

New, 7 comments

Well, RAMBO is under attack on Wikipedia, anyway, where the entry has been nominated for deletion. A tipster writes:

It appears that the (somewhat short) Wikipedia article for RAMBO (which uses the Curbed contest as a reference) has been nominated for deletion. If you check out the discussion page for the article and the deletion comments, many people who claim to be well-versed in real estate seem doubtful that the place even exists. I live there and it most certainly does. Perhaps the article should be redubbed with the drab but established title "Bridge Plaza"? Here it is, friends:

RAMBO (an acronym for "Right After the Manhattan Bridge Overpass" refers to a small neighborhood in the downtown area of the New York City borough of Brooklyn. Its borders are Flatbush Avenue Extension, Tillary Street, and the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway (BQE). The area is also known historically and in city planning as "Bridge Plaza". The only eatery in RAMBO is a 24-hour McDonald's. RAMBO used to be part of Vinegar Hill until the 1950s, when the construction of the BQE effectively isolated it from surrounding areas.To delete or not to delete? That is the question.
