I had heard it mentioned in movies and I knew it began with B, but Boynton was the closest I came to it. I've only been to NYC once, and few of these were mentioned on the Circle Line tour. :)

Tribeca = TRIangle BElow CAnal (Street) Nolita = NOrth of LITtle ItAly Soho = SOuth of HOuston (Street) DUMBO = Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass! Leave it to the Real Estate hawkers to rename your neighborhood in order to bring the big-bucks from naive newcomers.

Jerry Seinfeld grew up on Long Island, in Massapequa. Perhaps it would be better to say the character Jerry Seinfeld because the real person lived on Long Island.

But Long Island isnt part of NYC and thus Massapequa isnt a NYC neighborhood. SO the question is fine as asked.

Its a joke. Get over it already. "Meat Packers" is a derogatory term for gay men. Village... ipso facto... if you dont get it by now then forget it.

This is not a complaint. I just wanted to comment that Brooklyn has a China Town (8 Ave main shopping street) that I think by now is at least as large as the one in Manhattan. Also, I heard that an old Italian woman was evicted from her apartment in Little Italy in order to turn the building into a museum dedicated to the history of Little Italy. I'm not sure if that is the truth or an urban legend.

Stranger things have happened, so I wouldn't dismiss the story out of hand. The things we do to our elderly is shameful, to say the least.
