In LA I've always thought Tarzana, Atwater Village, Windsor Square, Pico-Union, and Boyle Heights, and Watts were interesting sounding names.

In Detroit, there is a fairly non-descript neighborhood on the far northwest side called, THE EYE.

Here it is outlined on Google Maps, and it is on neighborhood maps

I believe that name comes from those neighborhood watch signs that featured a big eye. See below.

If it's widely recognized as locals, it should have official status. I think the thread parameters are fair, and actually prevent failed realtor attempts to rebrand areas without official consensus. It keeps out thing like the Piano District for the South Bronx, or MidVil for Midtown Village, Philadelphia (and Midtown Village was itself a realtor attempt to displace the name Gayborhood).

Well, a lot of cities don't have official neighborhood names because they don't serve any function on a government level and often have arbitrary boundaries.

And Piano district will never catch on. However, other dumb names have caught on and are now widely accepted, such as Tribeca.
