There are plenty of GeekLists with games that have country names in them, state names, and even city names. But I thought it would be fun to go hyper-local and see how many games have neighborhood names in them, even if few to none of them are on purpose...

I can't ignore Harlem, even I've only driven through it. It is the only neighborhood north of Central Park that anyone cares about. Sorry, Inwood and Morningside Heights.
