Community Invited to Discuss the Fate of Hoboken's Post Offices
A meeting will take place on Tuesday night at 5 p.m. in the downtown Post office at 87 River St.
The United States Postal Service is holding its final public meeting on Tuesday night for input on whether or not Hoboken needs all its post offices.
The meeting will take place inside the lobby of the Frank Sinatra Main Post Office located at 89 River Street from 5 to 6 p.m.
Hoboken could stand to lose three post offices, according to a recent study done by the USPS.
One of the offices that could close is the west side branch on Grand street in the Southwestern corner of town. Council members Michael Russo and Tim Occhipinti—who represent the western area of town—have said that they want to keep that location open.
“If the closing occurs, it would cause extreme inconvenience to the residents of
the Third Ward," said Russo in a statement about the matter.
