I'm thinking of Amagansett NY where the mail was not delivered. We had to drive into town and get it from our numbered box. At the time I was spending summers there (1950s/60s), there weren't even names on those 3 roads in Lazy Point. So someone's address there to get mail would be John Smith, Box 110, Amagansett NY.
How ambulances and fire trucks found anyone's place is beyond me. No one had numbers on their homes probably because the roads had no names.
I'm sure by now they have names and there is probably mail delivery.
