Question of the Day: North Easton vs. South Easton
Just a zip code? Or an identifying feature?
We'll be asking Easton Patch readers a different question every weekday at noon. Questions could range from local decisions made by officials, to state issues, to national politics and entertainment. Whatever it is, we want to know what EASTON thinks! To answer, use our comments section below.
Ask any long-time Easton "townie" and they will tell you that in the old days there was a big difference between South Easton and North Easton. South Easton was known for its open space and farming while North Easton was home to the Ames Shovelshops, H.H. Richardson-designed buildings and tight-knit neighborhoods.
Today, though, the main seperator between the two areas is a zip code. North Easton is in the 02356 zip code while South Easton is 02375. Still, many people identify with living in South Easton or North Easton.
We are all "Eastonites," but does it matter if you live in North or South Easton? Is it just a zip code? Or is it an identifying feature to where you live?
