Rep. Engel: Bronx Postal Boxes Are Being Replaced Throughout The Borough

Bronx, NY—Congressman Eliot L. Engel wants to inform Bronx residents that post office boxes throughout the borough are being replaced with new boxes that are cleaner and cannot be fished for mail – an act of pulling mail out of the box through the slot. Older postal boxes have already been uprooted which may cause an inconvenience for residents, especially during the busy holiday season. Postal officials have told Rep. Engel’s office that the new postal boxes should be in place soon.

“Many of my constituents have been in for a surprise lately as they went to drop letters off at the mail box only to find it wasn’t there,” Congressman Engel said. “The timing of this move is less than auspicious, but in order to protect our mail during the busy holiday season this change had to be made. I will continue to keep in contact with postal officials throughout this process to ensure the boxes are replaced as soon as possible.”
