Alternate names for what the Times calls “Quooklyn”

MyrtleAvenue

We’ve just gotten used to Jefftown. Please don’t start calling the neighborhood on the border of Bushwick Brooklyn and Ridgewood Queens “Quooklyn.”

The Awl has some alternatives that we MUCH prefer:

1. Woodbush
2. Ridgewood
3. Bushwood
4. “Well my mailing address is Queens but I feel like I live in Brooklyn.”
5. Bushridge
6. “I mean I live off the L, so.”

Read the rest at The Awl or add your own in comments.
