Use schools.

Say I live near Churchill and 90% of people would know where you live.

North central would also be correct but it encompasses a large chunk or real estate.

If I'm wrong about these being the places, let me know.

But basically it would seem what you mean by Nicknames is basically a District or 'hood (short for neighborhood).

Well, yes, SA has those. Though most are in the inner city area close to downtown. The furthest one would be Stone Oak which is in far north SA.
good luck with those neighborhoods via google's information. I would suggest traveling armed using that info. I suppose they mean well.

Cool! Rock on Squirrel Hill. Does he live near Sophie? (last I heard our ex mayor was still cruising around in her land yacht as she approached 90.)
It's almost a triple yoi!

Wonderful place to visit, never, ever want to shovel snow there again.
