BoCoCa NY Patch: The Times Plaza Post Office located at 542 Atlantic Ave. in Brooklyn, NY, will close on Jan. 13, the USPS has confirmed. However, services will be split between two new neighborhood locations to open on Jan. 17.
The change was caused by “a request received from the building owner stating that they wish to reclaim the space leased by the USPS,” a postal announcement circulated Thursday by Community Board 2 read.
According to the announcement, “Mail delivery to the community will not be affected and will continue as usual.”
Going forward, the USPS will divide its neighborhood retail services from its delivery and carrier services.
[The Postal Service had been leasing 542 Atlantic Ave.; the lease ended on Dec. 28, 2016. The new location at 539 Atlantic Ave., which is just across the street from the old post office, is part of a development project called Atlantic Gardens.]
