Biltmore Slums -- I believe Valley Native, a regular on this board, coined the phrase. I take it to mean neighboroods that are close to the Arizona Biltmore resort but not actually part of the development. That might mean the area between 24th St. and SR 51 north of Camelback Road, for example. It might also mean neighorhoods along Camelback east of 32nd St. but west of Arcadia. The term "slum" is used sarcastically. The "slums of the Biltmore" are actually very nice neighborhoods that are "slummy" only in comparison to the multi-million dollar homes that ring the actual Biltmore resort.
