Telephone pole version of standard mast lamppost. In the NYC version, the mast is flanged for some reason, and bolted onto the pole through a triangle or diamond shaped metal plate. And many of them would have severe rusting problems. (Also bears GE "scoop" figure).

Now, NYC is adopting a one-piece davit pole, which [variations of] could be found in places like Philly, Albany, and certain Long Island highways and Maryland hwy rest stops. There is also a double version (a bunch of them going in at Williamsburg Bridge Plaza this month), which are still single piece, rather than two masts bolted to a pole.
