Do You Live on This Street, That Street, or the Other Street

I ask because these are actual place names in Porter's Lake, Nova Scotia. It might be fun for locals to give intentionally confusing directions.

For greater ease of navigation, I suggest Harlingen, Texas. When, a couple decades ago, I was trying to find my way around, I realized that the street names were all US Presidents in the order of their presidencies. I could navigate historically.

I wondered how Harlingen handled the Grover Cleveland problem. I would be pleased if it circled around Harrison. Then I noticed it didn't have a Harrison at all! Oh, wait, it does. "Harrison Ave." is in the right place for William Henry Harrison, president for 31 days. Neither Benjamin Harrison nor John Quincy Adams have their own streets, preventing duplicate street names. Looks like the presidents stop with Bush as there's no Clinton.
