Description

The historic main post office building in Far Rockaway, New York “was built in 1935, and is one of six post offices in New York State designed by architect Eric Kebbon as a consultant to the Office of the Supervising Architect. It is a two-story brick building with limestone trim and a low granite base in the Colonial Revival style. Its main façade features a centrally placed polygonal shaped frontispiece with a rounded dome inspired by Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello. It also has a grand entrance vestibule.” (Wikipedia)
