Today, he wouldn’t have needed to ask. Women are wearing their area codes, zip codes and cities proudly, although they still have to divulge further. If I say I live “Uptown,” people aren’t satisfied until they hear “Upper West” or “Upper East.” And it’s no longer enough to say you’re from Brooklyn, now you must clarify if you’re from Williamsburg or Fort Greene; Park Slope or Prospect Park.

Here, some customizable items to help you to silently spell it out.
