The office hours say it is open and i have tried for last 2 hours to call them at the number 732-541-8397 and no one picks up!! This is on a Thursday between 11 am and 1 pm.


My neighborhood, Mulberry St. have been getting everyone else's mail. I have gone days without receiving any mail and that is highly unusual for me. I had people coming to my house to deliver my mail but how do I low if there is anything missing???


As a Gateway Resident of the new development in Carteret, not a renter but an OWNER of one of the town house, I keep having to go the 101 Roosevelt Leasing Office to pick up my packages, which is not only inconvenient but annoying. I clearly include my address and building number yet the packages continue to be delivered to the wrong location. This needs to be fixed. I pay for my packages to the be delivered to my house and I should have to go elsewhere to pick it up.
