Engel Pushes For Post Office Improvements In Yonkers

Yonkers, NY—The Yonkers South Station Post Office will soon receive some much-needed improvements thanks to the efforts of Congressman Eliot L. Engel. Following reports from constituents of long lines, insufficient staffing, and lackluster interior care, Engel reached out to postal officials in July seeking swift improvements to the post office, located at 335 South Broadway in Yonkers. Less than a month later, postal officials responded to Congressman Engel’s requests stating that the post office will hire more part-time workers at all Yonkers locations, including the South Station, within the coming weeks. In addition, they have also agreed to paint the lobby area and work to replace broken light fixtures inside the South Station.

“I want to thank the United States Postal Service for heeding our requests and being so responsive to the needs of the community,” Congressman Engel said. “Yonkers deserves top-notch service at all of its postal locations, in addition to well-maintained facilities. More staffing should go a long way toward alleviating wait times, which are incredibly frustrating for patrons. And though many of the post office buildings are old—the South Station was built during the Johnson administration—a little love and care, in addition to some fresh paint, can go a long way. I look forward to seeing these changes made in the coming days and weeks.”
