If you don't like it, you can always go up to Billsburg, VA

town nicknames are a fact of life. I'm from "Trin'te" originally. that's just a little south of "Tha Boro" and east of "K vegas". Love'em or not, people will always come up with lazy ways of saying where they are from.

And it's been Chucktown since the mid 90s at least.


It was called Chucktown much longer than that. I heard it called that long before I was down there in the late 80's.
