The United States Postal Service has fallen on hard times as volumes of mail drop and costs of doing business rise. They are selling or leasing off their properties to make ends meet and this building is one of them sold to a developer. The developer has "pledged to keep the historic appeal" while "renovating for new office and residence space" or some such thing. When I visited the interior had holes in the walls and piles of debris here and there. The postal clerk when asked when their last day was replied, "Oh we'll be here for some time." We shall see.
