Microneighborhood
New York magazine, 3 January 2005, had an article titled "The Rise of the Microneighborhood." The new "neighborhood" is a "microneighborhood" that can be defined as a block or even just part of a block.

New York magazine didn't coin the term.

Robert Sietsema, the food writer in The Village Voice, 5 March 1996, pg. 15, wrote: "Here on West 53rd, we've stumbled on one of the African microneighborhoods that are springing up all over town."

Jim Leff (of Chowhound.com fame) used "micro-neighborhood" in Newsday, 23 October 1996, pg. B27.
