The description on the postcard read: “Shinnecock Hill Post Office established in the late 1800’s is located in what was formerly the Long Island Railroad Station. It is open from May 16th to October 15th annually. The Postmastership has been in the Terwilliger family since1905.”
Jodi was transferred to Hampton Bays Post Office and wrote that she would still be living “where we always do.” I guess that meant the wooden structure by the tracks.
I got married several years later and never saw Jodi Jordan or Mrs. Terwilliger again.
According to the Internet, “the last train to carry mail on theLong Island Rail Roadwas train #37 running from Speonk toJamaicaonJune 18, 1965, thus bringing to a close almost 130 years of U. S. Mail service on the L.I.R.R.”
Today I still vacation in the house my folks built and I’m still recharging my battery…just different kinds of batteries; iPad, iPhone, etc. Time rails on and I love the “iTimes” I spend in theHamptons.
