Boca Del Vista

For those of you who have no idea what that means, sorry but you missed Seinfeld. For the rest of us (and Barry, that means you), you know exactly what I mean .

So, this morning I was driving around in South Palm Beach County – Boca, Delray, Boynton. I was noticing the names of all the communities in this area and how unoriginal some of them are.

Bocaire, Delaire, Belaire – all right next to each other. I believe the  original was Palmaire but that’s in some other airea (get it?). As for Belaire, must be a common theme for the upper class as there’s the famous one in LA and the not so famous one in Livingstein, NJ. Actually, we now have more than one in that area.

There’s the names that exude old time waspish endeavors – Hunters Run, Quail Run (I believe Dick Cheney wants a place there) and The Polo Club. Or Admiral’s Cove where I am sure there no admirals but plenty of treasure, sunken or otherwise.  Kings Point and Gramercy Square to remind you of life back in NY. Romance language names like Boca Teca, Boca Lago and San Marco.

Before I sign off, one question.  Are you the master of your domain?


About IraSez

I am the owner of Monarch Communications, a graphic design/advertising/website design firm in Millburn, NJ. You can take a look at some of our work at I started IraSez at the urging of my wife, a couple of friends and several facebook friends who actually encouraged me to write a book. They think I'm funny but some of my latest blogs have covered some rather somber topics. In my spare time, I run the local SU alumni club. I'm in the 9th year of a 3 year term or as us SU grads called "fuzzy math." I'm SU '82, wife is SU '83, daughter is SU '11, son is SU '14, even my nephew goes to SU. So yes, we bleed Orange. I like to play golf, watch the same movies over and over, and take long walks with my dog on the trails in South Mountain Reservation behind Old Short Hills. If you see a guy wearing something with an SU logo chasing after a dog named Cosmo, that's me!

    You were here and did not call…. did you miss all the Valencias on your tour of community names. This Israeli builder wanted us to think we were in Europe…. he is up to 7 communities now with that name–lakes, isles, falls, palms, shores, pointe and reserve, all in Delray and Boynton. Liked your observations, gave me a giggle….
