SoMa? NoPa? NOBE? SoHo? SoFla? SoDoSoPa? What would be the “acroname” of your neighborhood?

A 99% Invisible podcast episode featured an episode on what they call “Acronames” — manufactured neighborhood names often plastered in gentrified urban areas. Listen to learn the history of the naming of SoHo, which started the craziness.

Make a poster! Or do an audio bumper? You choose. Make it hip. Hipster.

We highly recommend the 99% Invisible podcast for their interesting stories on design in the world:

99% Invisible is about all the thought that goes into the things we don’t think about — the unnoticed architecture and design that shape our world.
