Good natured insults - New York

I'm working on a Steve/Bucky modern AU fic, and am wondering if anyone can help me with a few insults. Bucky grew up in Brooklyn Heights and currently lives in Red Hook. What might he say about Bed-Stuy? Just some good-natured, common kind of stuff, that 'my neighborhood is better than yours' kind of thing people do.

I've googled 'what bad things to people say about Bed-Stuy' and variations on that theme and just get reams of crime statistics. 'Insults/neighborhood rivalry all that kind of thing gets me nowhere.


(PS - is the Dreamwidth of this community totally blank or am I just not seeing anything due to some weird quirk?)
