It’s a beautiful building that catches the eye with its elegant Beaux Arts design and imposing Corinthian columns. Thankfully, it did not suffer the fate of the original Pennsylvania Station across the street, which was demolished in 1963 despite public outcry. There is a small...More

Walked into the post office expecting to see displays and murals but all I saw were people walking around aimlessly with packages and very unimpressive walls and ceilings.
