Bushwick residents fed up with poor mail delivery

BUSHWICK -

Bushwick residents are demanding changes from their local post office.

Grove Street residents say they are fed up from a lack of deliveries, mail being given to wrong addresses or mail that has simply gone missing.

They also say that mail is being left in communal spaces, leaving residents vulnerable to theft and fraud.

One resident even says that they never received their green card in the mail, so they had to put up more money to finally get one.

"We have a bunch of apartments in our building. They put all of our mail in one person's box, and then we all have to go through and find our bills," says Bushwick resident Kevin Davies.

One family even says that missing mail could lead to health issues. Saana Malik says she is missing a family member's backup dose of an EpiPen.

News 12 reached out to the United States Postal Service, which says local management is aware of the issues and is working to resolve delivery issues in the coming weeks.
