your Hood in six words

This is a couple days old, but I had to include it. The folks over at Flavorwire put up a post encouraging people to Buck Stereotypes and describe their ‘hood in six words. Some of the answers are funny and some are just so true. Any other suggestions?

Here’s mine:
Brooklyn Heights/Cobble Hill - People a lot richer than me

And here’s some of my favorites from Brooklyn:

Red Hook: Can I stay at your place?
Boerum Hill: not on a hill at all.
Windsor Terrace : Old White Trash , New White Yuppies
Brooklyn Heights: Why is everyone so old?
Park Slope: It's midnight, Whitey it's your stop.
pk slope: babies, babies, babies, babies, babies, babies
Bushwick: Hipster who like to get mugged!
Williamsburg: hipsters + yuppies = time to move on
Prospect Heights: Gentrifiers hardly notice the occasional gunshot.
Crown Heights: Jew, Black, Jew, Black, Jew, Black
Sheepshead Bay: El Greco in my Maxima, son

You can see more here, including some for you nonbrooklynites.
