Ya gotta love the way geography gets skewed in real estate ads. Or at least Craigslist real estate ads.

* Murray Hill has been moved from the east 30s to the west 20s near Ninth Avenue;

* Morningside Heights has been moved from the west 110s/120s to 135th Street at Fifth Avenue (which, by the way, also has little to do with Madison Avenue, which is the title of the ad, although Madison is just a short block away from Fifth, so I'll let that slide);

* while Roosevelt Island is, in fact, part of Manhattan, it's really not the Upper East Side, is it? Mmmm... No.

It's only a matter of time before I see Staten Island listed as 'Lower Manhattan.' God, I hate apartment-hunting.
