Megan -- love the discussion of neighborhood names, something I deal with on a regular basis. The even-newer "new" residents of the so-called Black Pearl don't like that name either, and prefer "Uptown Triangle" -- which is so neutral that it could pretty much be anywhere Uptown.
Also, I'm told that Pigeontown is also seen as derogatory? The Pigeontown Steppers make proud use of it, but the neighborhood association there is called "Pensiontown." In our articles, I usually go with the more neutral "west Carrollton."
See you in two weeks. - Robert
