twins, tall and skinny

This is a weird pair; entrances on the 2nd floor (presumably), each not more than 8ft wide, w/ rickity staircases. I'm going to say it actually was one house to begin with, as this neighborhood doesn't have any other twins built this narrow. Take a look at the roofline, it looks like one house.

Either way, they are ugly.

(P.S. sorry about the low quality photo. I used my phone as I was walking)

One is the loneliest number

Easton sure has lots of ugly utility poles. This one is not even one of the worst; future posts may explore the best of the worst leaning, cracked, overloaded poles in the city.
But for now, take a gander at this one. If all goes as planned, it will soon be festooned with a proper cobrahead streetlamp! This pole sits at the confluence of the humble thoroughfare known as Sassafrass St. and N7th St. Being as it's an intersection, the powers-that-be have finally agreed that there IS in fact, suppoosed to be a streetlamp there.
I would like to give a grateful shout out to Mayor Panto, Councilwoman Elinore Warner, and Public Works dude Dave Hopkins for making this happen.
I hope to update this post soon with the AFTER photo. It's all up to Met-Ed now.
