Re: “Can Realtors Rebrand Oakland?

I've lived in 94608 for almost 11 years, at the meeting point of OAK/Berkeley/Eville, and this acronym is new to me. Our neighborhood association has referred to this distinct geographic spot as Three Corners for many years. No one calls this the "Golden Gate District" of Oakland, trust me. And 'gentrification', ie further eradication of crime in the area, has been a great thing (and very slow over the course of ten years). NOBE: no different from calling a neighborhood anything that helps people orient themselves to an area the acronym won't 'hipsterize' or gentrify this spot any faster than anywhere in the crazy unaffordable Bay Area.
