Hildebrand and Broadway is the very northwest corner of Midtown. From there Midtown extends all the way south to 35 and west to I-10.

Probably a local effort to capitalize on the success of Austin's SoCo (South Congress) area.

You mean, every city trying to capitalize on New York's success of its SoHo (South of Houston) area.

By the way there's a LoBro in Nashville. It also stands for Lower Broadway.

Midtown is a district. Within a district there are neighborhoods. Lower Broadway or Midtown Broadway is one of them.

Thatís understood, but the two areas have NOTHING in common. Usually a district is made up of neighborhoods that have similar characteristics are they not?

I live in River North at 1221 Broadway. Google tells me that I live in Government Hill. I guess I'm also very near Dignowty Hill too. I have no idea where I live lol. By the way, how does one pronounce "Dignowty" and "Mahncke" also?

1221 Broadway is River North.

Dignowity is pronounced Dig-no-wity.

You don't live in Government Hill. You live in the Downtown area.

I am unsure myself if River North is the whole area of northern Downtown, all south of 35, which would place you within it, or if it is just a small sliver running up and down either side of the river, also south of 35.

Mahncke = mawn-key

I've never heard anyone say "mawn-key" only "MAIN-key".

Although I'm sure in the original german it would be closer to your pronunciation, that's not common today, in my experience.

Sort of like how even people that speak spanish often call Blanco rd "blank-o" not "blahnk-o" with a spanish accent.

For dignowity, I've heard both "dig-no-witty" and "dig-NOW-ity", with the former being more common.
