An attempt by some businesses and real estate professionals to rebrand the southern part of the neighborhood as SoHa has been greeted by many residents as an affront to a capital of African-American culture and history.New York City is filled with neighborhood names altered by real estate professionals and developers to create cachet, some of which have stuck more than others.Occasional references to SoHa as a neighborhood date back almost 20 years but have picked up steam recently, including on local businesses such as the real estate agency Keller Williams NYC, which used SoHa for the team of real estate agents focusing on the area.A lifetime resident of the area, Simone and a few other people took over a flea market in the area a few years ago and called it the Soha Square Market.
