Re: “Best reader suggestions for what we should call peninsula’s upper east side

Its the neck, always has been, always will be, at least to us from here. Don't give a rats ass what y'all want to "rename" it, we are still calling it the neck. I think I'm going to start randomly renaming stuff for no good reason too. Starting with the Market Street Area. Instead of Little Italy like NYC, it will now be known as Little Buckeye or maybe Little Toledo, how about Little Cincinnati?

Re: “Best reader suggestions for what we should call peninsula’s upper east side

For past 12 years i have heard older black folks in my neighborhood (North Central/ Huger Street....represent!) refer to this area as the the Neck. where is Murrays Meats? used to be on Rutledge where Jamals is located, but now it is up on the Neck. sometimes they say up the Neck instead of up on the neck, but regardless it is already the neck part of the Peninsula. I, too, am tired of the inventa a culture mentality pushing ut towards NoMo which is so 1980,s lamo, ya know. just my .02.

Re: “Best reader suggestions for what we should call peninsula’s upper east side

I have to agree with Ima, I never heard anyone outside of the city paper call it anything but "the neck".

Re: “The Agenda: Trump returning next month; Roof's 'self-radicalization'; West Nile found in Chs. area skeeters

"Journo Ron Aiken has stayed on reported of impropriety inside Richland County government since leaving the SC Policy Council's The Nerve and founding Quorum Columbia, uncovering new allegations that county recreation officials were selling moonshine and counterfeit electronics out of their government offices"
Perhaps, if the reporter doesn't understand sentence structure and grammar, we should hire an editor that does?

Keep it NOMO, or rename it Upchuck.

Re: “Best reader suggestions for what we should call peninsula’s upper east side

All of these suggestions are actually more contrived than the original premise. What about “Doucheborough”, or “ Northdouche”, or “Uppermorrisonashleycooperdouche”? You know, something more fitting for the consumerist, invent-a-culture aspect of the exercise?

What about NoRav? Dual purpose. North of the Ravanel and stating a fact we don't need anymore TRav news.

Re: “Best reader suggestions for what we should call peninsula’s upper east side

I guess the day sleeping ne'er do wells who petend to write for this blog couldn't be bothered to notice that this exact same article was posted on this exact same blog on February 2, 2012. It was stupid and arrogant then and it still is now.

You don't get to name NoMo. It already has a name that makes more sense, actually does roll of the tongue and came about organically. If George Costanza taught us nothing else he taught us that you can't pick your nick name.

Re: “Best reader suggestions for what we should call peninsula’s upper east side

I like Martha Lou's Neighborhood, got a homey and old school vibe feel to it. But otherwise than that, I'm down with any name given as long as it's one word.

What about The Ashley Cooper Corridor? (this area is where they are at their closest.)

Re: “Best reader suggestions for what we should call peninsula’s upper east side

Aside from in CP I don't recall hearing "NoMo" more than a couple of times. And as far as having a dog in the fight, you're tilting the table toward your own constituency, I'd say that carries some weight.

Re: “Best reader suggestions for what we should call peninsula’s upper east side

Ima, Aside from there being no other viable alternatives until now, I'd go out on a limb and say that part of the reason why NoMo has stuck around like it has is that 1) it's pretty silly and fun to say and 2) because there was so much outrage about it. NoMo obviously wouldn't be the name of an area of town that extends well beyond the short Morrison Drive corridor (and even smaller North Morrison Drive area), which is why the city created the survey. There'll be a lot more going on in this area of town in the coming years and I suspect a name will come about organically as it continues to grow. We don't have a dog in the fight besides not wanting a crummy name. But feel free to conspire away.

Re: “Best reader suggestions for what we should call peninsula’s upper east side

As I commented on the original column last week, " I always felt it an interesting piece of arrogance that CP staff felt they had the right to name a neighborhood."
So I guess, technically, they've changed course asking their readers to name it, although CP is still pulling the strings.
