Thanks for the info. What have "South" Brooklyn and Red Hook been renamed as? I remember when the "Creek", a pungent, reedy inlet south of Avenue U and Marine Park, was renamed (and developed, of course) to Kings Bay. In the early 50s, we were forbidden to go to the Creek as it was thought to be a dangerous breeding ground for polio. And I'm sure there are many other locales given new upscale names. I live in a section of Staten Island called Princes Bay, sometimes spelled Prince's Bay, and Princess Bay. Years ago, a part of this section was called Princewood, adding to the mix-up. I guess they didn't think Princes Bay was regal enough.
