Why not ‘Eastie’?
A few weeks ago, alert Eastie residents noticed somebody advertising an apartment in ”EaBo” on craigslist.
Now Salem Group Properties has set up a weblog just to discuss real estate in Boston’s ”EaBo” neighborhood: ”EaBo is broken up into 3 major sections: Eagle Hill, Orient Heights, and Jeffries Point.”
That’s not sitting at all well with Marilora, who writes on her ”Letter from Eastie” weblog that, unlike ”EaBo,” East Boston has four major areas (she adds the Flats).
More important: ”The madness must be stopped! I wonder if this is an effort to trick unsuspecting yuppies into thinking that they are moving to a new, previously undiscovered neighborhood of Boston.”
