St. Louis: Dogtown, although not an official neighborhood (only to the locals)

Also, Central West End is a cool name (to me, any way)

I always thought Jamaica Plain was kind of a funny name for a neighborhood.

Well, Baltimore City has Dickeyville and there is also a suburb called Cockeysville. Also, when you go over to Ocean City,Maryland, the bridge goes right over Big Assawoman Bay and there is also a Little Assawoman Bay.

Cincinnati has Over-the-Rhine, named by German immigrants.

Lower Price Hill, East Price Hill, and Price Hill. Gets confusing.

And a neighborhood called California.

Omaha has the Gold Coast which is great seeing as how we are thousands of miles from any coast. It is not even on the river.

I was thinking the same thing St. Louie Louie.

Any time I hear Compton my mind goes to Compton in LA, but hopefully Compton is St. Louis is a little safer.

Dogtown's interesting as well, and The Hill.
