It feels like everyday someone comes up with a new abbreviation for an area of Manhattan (SoHo, BoCoCa, DUMBO, and so on.). Here comes another one and it encompasses Battery Park City. A marketing group in the city has picked CanDo (pronounced “can due”), short for Canal Downtown which they would like to be the name for the area south of Canal Street. The marketing group says it is an attempt to give the area more a attractive feeling for those visiting as right now the majority of tourist do not lodge in our area unless they have work on Wall St. The marketing group plans to put out maps with the labeled CanDo area at local hotels in the beginning of the year. So far CanDo has received mixed reviews. We would love to know what you think. You can read the full story here.
