Neighborhood Renamings

Generally speaking, it's not a good idea for a major media outlet to call a neighborhood by the wrong name—especially if that neighborhood is in the Northeast. CBS3, in reporting that a little girl was hit by an SUV at Large and Pratt, said it happened in Mayfair. Hoo boy. No one sitting at the Mayfair Diner would stand for that. The intersection is actually in Northwood, whose 19124 zip code doesn't even include Mayfair. Maybe Northwoodians should start calling CBS3 "6ABC." [neastphilly]
