Fight to Save Harlem Post Office

The Postal Service announced plans to close and sell the College Station Post Office in Harlem. The College Station Post Office was funded by the Public Works Administration and built by the Treasury Department in 1937. The Postal Service is looking to relocate to a new facility on Striver’s Row on 138th Street. The Postal Service has attempted to sell the College Station location since 2009 but the community successfully blocked the attempts. Community members and the New York Metro Area Postal Union are fighting the most recent effort. The Postal Service has closed post offices nationwide due to insufficient funding from Congress, excluding the public from many fine New Deal buildings and murals. Public comment period is open until November 10, 2017. Email [email protected] for details.
