Not getting your mail in Greenpoint or Williamsburg? Here’s why
A recent audit revealed that post offices in Greenpoint and Williamsburg are plagued with substantial issues, including mail not being delivered on time — if at all — and to incorrect addresses.
In addition to untimely deliveries, the inquiry also revealed deeper problems. The branches, located in Brooklyn zip codes 11211, 11222 and 11249, failed to secure valuable items and the buildings had inadequate safety measures in place.
The examination, performed by the U.S. Postal Service inspector general after numerous complaints, as well as a concerted effort between state and federal legislators, was conducted from August to December. It revealed undelivered and delayed mail, improper scanning of packages, improper security of valuable items and a lack of safety, maintenance and security standards within the buildings.
Assemblymember Joseph Lentol, who helped coordinate the audit, said the inspection was the first step toward returning accountability, trust and confidence to the area.
