The Park West Post Office at 700 Columbus Avenue near 95th Street has some unfortunate news for people planning to send packages this holiday season: They can’t.
That’s what the postal officer told Tsadik Kaplan when he went in on Friday.
“I went to the post office at 700 Columbus avenue this morning with some packages to mail. This normally busy post office had one customer on line. When I went on the line I was greeted with “HEY! We don’t mail packages!”. I thought she was joking, and I smiled. She said “HEY!!! I said we don’t mail packages!”. I said “wha?”. “LOOK AT THE SIGNS!” I asked when they will mail packages again and she replied with a big smile “AFTER THE NEW YEAR!”
