More Neighborhood Naming

Johnny0 has alerted me that Eddo of herrachinky is the Kim Peek of naming SF neighborhoods. Don’t believe me? Check out these masterpieces from his twitter:

  • DUCFOP (Down Under Central Freeway Overpass)
  • HayBro (Hayes Broderick)
  • SLUM (South of Lower Upper Market)
  • FerBu (Ferry Building)
  • Castr8teenth (Castro 18th)
  • MissCapCha (Mission Capp Chavez)
  • CliChé (Clipper Church Chenery)

If there’s one thing worthwhile to include in the Library Of Congress, this is it.

    i’d like to add my neighborhood to the list. it’s called the “florabama corridor.” it’s the stretch of florida and alabama st which run parallel to each other. and by the way it’s florabama, NOT floribama. in case you were wondering, the name was taken from the bar which straddles the florida/alabama state border. and if you are interested, our slogan is “harrison’s gateway to bryant.”

    i like to call the area between castro and the haight the castraight. i know it’s kinda duboce triangle or something, but when i lived there no one else knew where the hell i was talking about when i said that. and hence, the castraight was born.
