Times Plaza Post Office Follies: Bad Week for Mail
If you live on Boerum Hill and you were waiting for your mail last week, there is a chance that it didn't show up on several days. We saw a significant number of emails complaining about skipped deliveries, including one who was counting the number of days that her New Yorker was overdue. Here's the latest:
I have seen several posts over this past week about undelivered mail on several blocks. I have experienced the same on my block of Bergen between Hoyt/Bond,And this possible explanation:
our (odd number side) only. I just received priority mail yesterday dated 2/27 mailed from downtown Brooklyn. The mail was sporadic for two days this past week. Many neighbors on my block experienced the same. I have filled out the survey on line and have seen the posts for so-called improvement. I was at the Times Plaza PO on Tuesday and I waited for for over 20 minutes for the certified mail to be located and this was with the pink slips. The postal worker couldn't find one of them. What is our next plan of action as a community?. We have tolerated this for much too long! Things seem to improve for a week and then they worsen to a level that was lower than before action was taken. Patiently awaiting my New Yorker...
When my regular carrier brought 2 days worth of mail yesterday, he told me that there is a new supervisor who is just learning how things work. That may be one of the factors. Nonetheless, non-delivery of mail is unacceptable. So, can the people who have been working with Times Plaza continue the process they have already started? In addition to everyone posting problems here to created a record, what can we all do to help? How quaint the "nor rain, nor snow. . ." postal commitment sounds in this context where our carriers are "stay[ed] . . . from their appointed rounds."And, it's only Monday morning.
