Local post offices escape the chopping block

usps logo on mailboxWell, at least a few of them. Three of the local post offices slated for possible "consolidation" by the Postal Service are no longer on the list. The USPS says it still hasn't made any final decisions -- and it won't until after October 2.

Here are the three locations no longer on the chopping block...

  • Academy - 563 NEW SCOTLAND AVE ALBANY, NY 12208
  • Fort Orange - 450 CENTRAL AVE ALBANY, NY 12206
  • Rotterdam Square - 93 W CAMPBELL RD SCHENECTADY, NY 12306

The Academy location significant because the USPS had been considering pretty much every post office on the south side of Albany for consolidation.

Here are the three that could still be closed:

  • Delaware Ave - 332 DELAWARE AVE STE 1 ALBANY, NY 12209
  • Patroon - 1226 BROADWAY MENANDS, NY 12204
  • Scotia - 224 MOHAWK AVE SCHENECTADY, NY 12302

Do something at a state park maybe? We had our anniversary at Thacher Park. There are a lot of logistics when you do it that way, but it's a beautiful view, there is a pavilion so you don't need a tent, and they have bathrooms so you don't need to rent potties.
