Long Beach New York Post Office
The historic post office building in Long Beach, New York “was built in 1936 and designed by the Office of the Supervising Architect under the direction of Louis A. Simon. It is a one-story, symmetrically massed building faced with red brick in the Colonial Revival style. It features a central five-bay-wide section with a gable roof, flanked by single bay end pavilions with gable roofs perpendicular to the central section. The lobby features a mural by Jon Corbino installed in 1939 and titled “The Pleasures of Bathing.” (Wikipedia)
The building became listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989.
