When I was a kid, my dad used to refer to garden apartments in Chicago as "Bohemian Apartments." He wasn't referring to artists. Instead--he explained--it was because the Bohemians (aka Czechs) were the only ones who'd rent them.
Yes, I know he was being a paragon of Chicago's legendary intolerance for people of another culture or race, but I was wondering if anyone else had ever heard this expression.
