Have not received any mail for over a month and went to post office and thry did not have any mail for me tbere, evwn though informed delivery showed I had mail. Noticed blue tape was put over the top of my box where mail person drops mail in. Lousy service since Dejoy has been sabotaging our treasured Postal svc. Extremely angey as I am missing tax documents. Dejoy is corrupt and must be removed.


I am not getting any mail since I had my address changes back to my home address, 245 W 24th street, apt 3, NY NY 10011. What gives?????


I had a Mail Hold placed October 10 through October 19, 2018. As I am enlisted in "Informed Delivery Digest", I am informed of what pieces of mail I can expect on any given day. As far as I can ascertain, I received none of my mail that was held October 10-October 15.


whenever our regular mail carrier is out, on vacation or day off, we get substitute mail carriers, the worse was on May 7, 2018 he came after 7 pm did not give us all our mail, put wrong mail in the mailboxes, DID NOT PICK UP OUR OUTGOING MAIL FROM OUR SPECIAL MAILBOXES, why have them period if it will not be picked up every day we are getting lousy service from the post offie so-called relief mail carriers our regular guy is a great guy when hes off we get rotten service in our bldg because were all low income


no mail in box jan 6 and no jan 7 2021 what gives here

Doing business in the Old Chelsea Post office on West 18 street was a pleasure. The ladies in the lobby and behind the windows were professional and pleasant and knew exactly how to answer my questions. 5 stars
