New York's MTA Declares One Block A Neighborhood in Campaign

425_f trainDSCN4191.jpg

According to Animal, New York's MTA is dramatically stretching the definition of a city block in a currently running poster campaign which declares the "Diamond District" an actual neighborhood. The kicker? The diamond district consists of barely one block. We wonder just how many neighborhoods the city would consist of if this definition became widespread.

LOL! Wonderful campaign. I work in the Kimchi and Kareoke "neighborhood" and it is one block long as well. Pickle and Pumps is also a smile maker!

The diamond district is indeed a neighborhood. A crammed little commercial neighborhood, yes, but it is a genuine neighborhood. So is Koreatown. So are many micro-neighborhoods around NYC. It's not about size, it's about impact.

Please show me one neighborhood map in NYC that includes the Diamond District. It doesn't even have residents really so I don't see your logic. So is the Empire State Building a neighborhood? Rockefeller Center? Actually, I guess St. Mark's is actually a 'micro-neighborhood' inside the East Village? Give me a break.

Who gives a fk ! What a waste of hot air. It's an ad. Not the real world. Get it? Advertising is not real. It's like the movies. Jeesh.

Wait, advertising is not the real world? And to think all this time I thought the Jolly Green Giant was a tall happy vegan. Thanks for raining on my parade rat!
