You wanna be petty and disagree with me, knock yourself out.
No disagreement.
There would need to be two opinions.

As I said, we should all thank you for your really insightful, not at all petty, contributions and observations.

I've lived near this area for over a decade either just south or just north and though not entirely common "Manhattan Valley" has been a term used by people in the area for as long I have lived here. In fact the idea of it being a real estate broker created term goes against their purpose as the real estate brokers are trying to call the area the UWS now. It is most certainly not a made up term in the vein of SOHA.

Not many people use the term Manhattan valley. Everyone just calls it the UWS. There's actually a valley in the neighborhood.

Thank you, that was exactly my point.
I mean ... even Columbia has been using that designation for some time now, probably out of respect, or to create the impression of that, for precisely what you said.

"Everyone" - not true. But I would definitely imagine that the "new" residents call it that.

This area is NOT, not at all, the UWS.

Well ... you have a right to designate your neighborhood of origin as you will !
I admit that I did insist on calling the area just west of Bowery the East Village, which it is not, really, once the "Noho" stuff started.
