Observations and Encounters of Daily Life - while armed with an iPhone

Go West

Street signs at the north terminus of Ontario Street in Cleveland, Ohio. Taken from the lobby of the Hilton Cleveland Downtown hotel.

Mapping software on my phone lists this street name as “West Lakeside Avenue” and “Lakeside Avenue East.” I’ve traveled through this particular intersection dozens of times. The building behind with the statue houses the Ohio 8th District Court of Appeals at 1 Lakeside Avenue E.

It just struck me as ironic and inconsistent that a left turn at this intersection puts you onto “West Lakeside Avenue” but a right turn sends you down “Lakeside Avenue East” or, as the sign itself indicates – just “Lakeside Avenue.”

A clearer cropped photo of the sign itself. Why isn’t the right arrow E. Lakeside? Just one of many Things That Make You Go Hmm…
