During the Community Board 2’s meeting last night, they announced that the USPS will open a storefront in Dumbo ‘in the near future’ to alleviate overcrowding at the busy station, said Cadman Plaza Station manager George Baez, as reported by Brooklyn Heights Blog. Currently, there is a Post Office truck stationed in Dumbo usually on Front or Washington Street during the week. Per Brooklyn Heights Blog:
“…The storefront at 85 Front St., which is between Main and Washington streets, will have an automated postal center, which are the machines that process your post via credit card and without a clerk.”
85 Front is between Washington and Adams, so not sure if CB2 meant that or if the PO will actually be between Main and Washington Streets. Either way, no word on timing, but this is a welcome addition for residents who currently have to take their packages to the Cadman Plaza Post Office.
