The current location of the Northport PO is antiquated, parking is a nightmare, and it is not handicap-accessible. Let the PO relocate to another, user-friendly location within the Village (like, perhaps, the King Kullen shopping center) and use the original building for another purpose. Who uses the PO much anymore, anyway? I use phone, email, Facebook, etc. for 95% of my communications, and I pay most of my bills by computer. You can buy stamps in the supermarkets. What the postal system is trying to do is reduce its overhead through consolidation because it's a dying institution. I think keeping a storefront presence within Village boundaries will meet both sides' needs, and using the Main Street building for another purpose will preserve the historical value.
