If there's Menlo Park and "West Menlo Park", is Belle Haven East Menlo Park?
How about having one Menlo Park?

Don't pay attention to how this report is organized. Yes, Belle Haven is also referred to as east Menlo Park. Back in the day, this was to distinguish neighborhoods, not for such snobbish reasons as is in evidence currently, however.
