Tag Archives: Green’s Farms post office
Last March, alert “06880” reader and proud Green’s Farms resident Nico Eisenberger noted that his neighborhood post office — convenient, friendly, with plenty of parking (shhhh!) — bore an unfortunately dilapidated sign:
He wondered what could be done.
It’s taken 11 months. You and I might think that’s 335 days. But in government terms, it’s warp speed.
Today, the Green’s Farms post office sports a spiffy new sign:
Best of all, it’s punctuated the correct — or, at least, official — way.
Our recent story about the sign on the Greens Farms post office spurred alert “06880” reader Seth Schachter to action. He sent along this photo he found on eBay, from decades ago:
Seth says it’s from the 1950s. He’s probably right. The sign above the windows — while similar to the current one — does not include a zip code. They were introduced in 1963.
Like many nearby residents, Nico Eisenberger appreciates the Greens Farms post office.
It’s convenient. It’s friendly. There’s always plenty of parking.
It’s a shame, Nico says, that the sign looks so dilapidated.
I don’t know the ways and means of helping a federal property, but if I were a more crafty carpenter and sign maker, I’d just do it in the middle of the night. Maybe someone local could talk to them, and offer to make a new sign.
Nico’s right — that might run afoul of all kinds of regulations. But if anyone with sign-making talent wants to stop in to the post office and ask — well, there’s seldom any wait.
