Report: Closure of the Peter Stuyvesant Post Office is pretty much a done deal
Catching up with this report by Sabina Mollot on the Town & Village Blog ... she reported on Friday that "the union representing regional postal employees learned that the United States Postal Service had decided to proceed with a plan to relocate the Peter Stuyvesant Post Office on East 14th Street."
The USPS would lease the former Duane Reade on East 14th Street near First Avenue for retail services, such as stamp sales and P.O. boxes.
However, a USPS rep told Mollot that the decision is not final.
The lease expires at the current location next February. The landlord reportedly told the USPS that they have other plans for the building, which was erected in 1951.
