New post office opens in Boerum Hill
A new post office will open in Boerum Hill Tuesday just across the street from its former location, but officials say services offered at the new location will be limited.
As News 12 has reported, some Boerum Hill residents are unhappy about the longer trip they have in store to pick up their missed packages. Package pickup will be transferred to a Dean Street location in Prospect Heights.
In a statement released to News 12, a USPS representative says the change is actually adding convenience for the customers.
"Package pickup customers will not wait behind what can be lengthy retail transactions, such as a passport application, package mailings, or money orders," the statement reads. "This increases the ability for our window personnel to service transactions quickly and efficiently for our retail customers."
The representative also said hours have been extended for the annex on Dean Street, and customers also have the ability to schedule a redelivery online.
