BROOKLYN - A Brooklyn politician says he wants to stop real estate groups from changing or making neighborhood nicknames.

Assemblyman Hakeem Jeffries says real estate groups sometimes label a section of the borough by a different nickname to sell or rent property.

He is putting forth the neighborhood integrity act, which would require a series of approvals before a neighborhood name can be changed. The bill would also punish real estate groups who promote property with a made-up name.
