The Greenpoint Post Office (via Google Maps)

Assemblyman Joe Lentol is calling for the U.S. Postal Service Inspector General to “conduct a thorough audit of mail delivery  and its efficiency in North Brooklyn.” Speaking for his constituents in Brooklyn zip codes in 11211, 11222, and 11249 Lentol addressed a letter to Inspector General Michael Horowitz urging a close look into the cause of mail-related complaints flooding Lentol’s office:

For the past few months, many constituents in our districts have expressed their dissatisfaction with the inadequate performance of the USPS. We have heard numerous complaints that include untimely deliveries, routine delivery to incorrect addresses and mail sometimes not being received at all.

The letter is also signed by U.S. Senators Kirsten Gillibrand and Chuck Schumer, and U.S. Congresswomen Nydia Velazquez and Carolyn Maloney. Read the full letter here.

  1. I hope this helps the service at the useless station.
    They’ve lost over $6000 in my paychecks over the last 2 years alone, all reported by me, all met with a “if it’s not certified we can’t help you.”
    Nobody gets paychecks by certified mail of course, and reissuing checks…
    Oh I also get my neighbor’s mail all the time, which is awesome.
