It is the area between Classon and Bedford Ave. named after the famous cafe on Greene and Franklin.
Yeah that's what I'd thought you'd say. Also a quick Google search brings up the coffee shop, a town in Pennsylvania and a hamlet in Westchester. No mention whatsoever of this area in Bedstuy. Caveat emptor.
When a community changes over the years as much as this one has, a new name is in order. It's not the same place anymore, not even close.
Each state that was added since then has a new name. Today the country had regions, north east, south, mid-west and west that did not exist before either. The USA has plenty of new names as it evolved so your comment makes no sense if you know anything about what you are saying.

I guess you are ignoring that the West, Mid-West, were not part of the USA, neither was Pacific Park part of Brooklyn, which is a new neighborhood entirely that is official and ajacent. The area has changed and evolved and my well written ad if you bothered to read it describes that. The USA has many different names to describe its expansion west and elsewhere, so your comment is pointless.

Caveat emptor. You know that this is the game. Change the name of the neighborhood and the nouveau riche will come. The south slope/gowanus creep as been shifting into sunset park for ages. I laugh when someone calls 32 street greenwood heights, even though, the cemetery is there, no one who has been here more than 15 years calls it "greenwood heights". These are marketing ploys, like "partial birth abortion", being used to describe a mid to late term abortion where the fetus STILL isn't viable, but must be extracted through a delivery like process.
I think I'll just call my neighborhood "where I live", until I move somewhere else.
I wouldn't mind naming EP to Atlantic Bedford Heights (Bedford Stuyvesant Crown Heights). I am always confused on how the border of Bedford Stuyvesant moved north from EP to Atlantic. When I was a kid, I always remember calling north of EP Bedford Stuyvesant. A new name for that area would put things back in order in my little mind. I recall that we had a conversation on this a couple months back. Apologies in advance to those in northern Crown Heights that feel attached to the name Crown Heights; I don't mean to offend you - Just an idea to ponder.
Then a few started trying to claim that western Crown Heights was actually Prospect Heights.
