I would certainly like the name of the douchebag bully security guard who hassled the woman who was breastfeeding her child.

I like that they call the Altura neighborhood "quaint." When I was growing up, we called it Pill Hill. you know. Because a lot of doctors lived there. Or were imagined to have lived there.

OBTS- called Pill Hill also due to all of the medical offices there, too.

altura isn't pill hill

Hey. I'm just saying what the people in my circle called it when I grew up. We called the Spruce Park neighborhood "Spruce Park neighborhood" or "that neighborhood where I babysit all the time."

I'm with OBTS. There were two Pill Hills when I was growing up here, Altura Park and Spruce Park. The medical offices in Spruce Park contributed to that neighborhood's designation, but as far as I knew both neighborhoods were mostly named for all the doctors who (supposedly) lived there. (I guess Spruce Park probably has more PhDs than MDs, but they were equivalent in our minds).
