The post office on main street is a complete eyesore. what an embarassment! for folks entering to the town from 39, i looks like Southampton is in total decay. How does the town allow such a disgraceful property to exist. reflects poorly on the town regardless of USPS responsibility. Fine them or something. just horrible welcome sign. disgusting!
