During the winter months the Highway Department will occasionally receive calls regarding damage to mailboxes either from snowplows directly or from the force of snow being thrown by the plows. Remember, snowplows can hurl hundreds of pounds of snow in one pass. If damage is, indeed, caused by snow removal, it is not done intentionally, but is an unfortunate consequence of snow removal. It is understood that mailboxes must be placed on the highway right-of-way; however, this does not grant people any legal rights in the highway when needed for highway purposes. According to New York State\\\'s Highway Law, when the necessities of keeping the highway open conflict with the reception of mail, the latter must stand aside. Under the law, a homeowner could even be required to remove the mailbox and are also not subject to repair by the municipality.

About Westhampton Beach, NY

Welcome to Westhampton Beach Village

As the Mayor of Westhampton Beach, it is my privilege to welcome you to our Village! Westhampton Beach is a sparkling destination that offers visitors the best of small-town living with a cosmopolitan vibe. From its pristine, world-class beaches, to the splendid shopping options along Main Street, to the wide array of fine dining choices, Westhampton Beach has it all. Whether you're seeking a family friendly stroll down our newly renovated Main Street, a sun-soaked day at the beach, or a foray into the diverse cultural lineup offered at our Performing Arts Center, the Village has something for everyone.

For a taste of the East End's rich bounty, head to the Farmers Market every Saturday at its new location on the Village Green. Don’t miss our Monday night movies on the Great Lawn, and kayak/paddleboard rentals at the Village marina. Our marina is located in the heart of the Village, so by land or by sea getting to Westhampton Beach is easy. This year, find time to stop by our park on Glover’s Lane for a peaceful moment sitting by the fountain, or some fun playing bocce, chess, checkers and backgammon.

Westhampton Beach's lush Village Green is the spot for summer experiences, with concerts under a starlit sky and children's events all summer long. Our spacious Great Lawn at the other end of Main Street is the location for several art shows, dance/opera, as well as Historical Society events offering a trip back into the pages of the past. Our Library is a haven for children and adults, the perfect place to find a satisfying beach read or movie, and where all can find extensive educational and fun programs. These hometown events will make forever memories for you and your family.

Summer is the time for simple pleasures. I hope you fully enjoy your stay in our charming Village and share in all that it has to offer.

Maria Z. Moore
Mayor, Village of Westhampton Beach
