Davey drill arrives ahead of rumored development at former East 14th Street post office
Here's further proof of some kind of future development at the former Peter Stuyvesant Post Office branch on East 14th Street.
A reader spotted workers taking soil samples outside 438 E. 14th St. yesterday.
Signs about asbestos removal went up on Aug. 15.
A quick recap:
This post office branch just west of Avenue A closed for good in February. (The USPS is leasing the former Duane Reade at 333 E. 14th St. for retail services.) Previously, the Stuyvesant Stationery shop next door to the post office lost its lease and closed. Both single-level buildings share the same landlord.
To date, there's nothing on file with the DOB to suggest any demolition or new development here.
