RAMBO Shows Up on Google Maps

What? What?! The area in Brooklyn around Flatbush Avenue Extension in downtown Brooklyn is known as “RAMBO” (Right After the Manhattan Bridge Overpass) has showed up on Google Maps, according to NY Post. Google has set the boundaries to be between Nassau Street and Tillary Street and Flatbush Ave Extension and Gold Street. But don’t look for it anytime soon on the MTA maps, as when Dumbo was included in 2010, says a DOT staff who asked not to be named.

While we’re on Google Maps, the correct location for the F subway station (York St) has still not been fixed. The map shows that the station is on the corner of Jay and Sands Street. The correct location is on the corner of Jay and York Street. We’ve submitted this error for many months.

Do you know how Dumbo got its name?
