I Love Franklin Ave. asks exactly that question—Why are there power lines in East New York? ILFA goes on to write that "unlike much of the rest of Brooklyn, East New York actually has a substantial chunk of its grid above ground. You can find lines connecting bits and pieces elsewhere, but it's rare to see utility poles on every corner in a major city." Also, needing an explanation is the shoe-tossing on the power lines. (Is it more than just a gang explanation or just kids playing around?)
So what are the answers to these two questions?
