Thread Name: Favorite Town names
Subject: RE: Favorite Town names
There used to be a town - village - crossroads not thirty or forty miles from New York City called 'Tilly Foster' but it seems to have disappeared.

And I was born in The Bronx (never just Bronx) although the modern practice is to address mail to Bronx, NY; no one would ever say it wothout the The.

And I'm looking out my window in Yonkers (What are Yonkers?) across the Bronx River at Tuckahoe, which I thought was a pretty distinctive name for a village until I discovered that there are seven other Tuckahoes in the US incliding another one right here in the state of NY!
