New Neighborhood Name Alert: “SoNYA”

View Larger Map

The Shaw neighborhood listserv published a poll today asking folks who they’d like to see as chair of ANC6E02. They include the following description of ANC6E02:

“to represent the Shaw, Mt Vernon Square, NoMa and “SoNYA” areas.”

I’ve never heard SoNYA used before (presumably south of New York Avenue) but it looks like it comprises much of what some people call Mt. Vernon Triangle (not to be confused with Mt. Vernon Square, which I usually use.) Anyone know how far south the southern border would be?

Think “SoNYA” has any chance of sticking?

It does have a nice ring to it…
