Kensington’s post office has a long history of neighborhood complaints. As far back as 2007, there was an online petition signed by local politician Bill de Blasio asking for improvements to be made. That petition gathered close to 300 signatures.
Postal service since then has continued to fall below residents’ expectations. The Kensington, Brooklyn, Facebook page has a discussion topic dedicated to the post office and comments are not complimentary. According to the Brooklynian, a well known Brooklyn online forum, the discontent has resulted in a meeting with postal officials. Members of the Community Board, the Albemarle Neighborhood Association and a concerned resident who has been collecting complaints all met with post office officials to air their concerns and discuss how progress can be made. Unfortunately, it is still too soon to tell if the meeting will result in better service.
The post office continues to urge residents to make their complaints known so as to better address them. Heather, a member of the neighborhood association, has also set up an email to collect complaints. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Hopefully, this is an issue that will soon be resolved once and for all.
