Visitors, we understand that New York can be a confusing place. If you've never been, how are you supposed to know where Hell's Kitchen is? Or what NoLita stands for? But we're just going to give you a heads up that there's good reason behind the Daily Meal's roundup of "6 New York Neighborhoods You May Not Have Heard Of." It's because nobody who actually lives here knows what a BoCoCa is.
Even though some people were trying to make BoCoCa (the area around Boerum Hill, Cobble Hill, and Carroll Gardens) a thing all the way back in 2004, you'd be hard pressed to find anyone who will actually say that out loud. Same goes for SoLita and Two Bridges, and don't even get us started on ProCro (Prospect Heights/Crown Heights). The only one we've actually heard people say is LIC, though we have been guilty of writing FiDi from time to time. They do mention other neighborhoods like, "SoHa (south of Harlem) haven’t exactly caught on yet," probably because it already has a name—the Upper East Side. Or Yorkville. Or, according to the taxi maps, Spanish Harlem. Man, this is complicated.
