With the increased airport security, he says more people have been applying for and renewing the travel documents.

Five Bronx post offices accepting appointments are the Woodlawn Station office on Katohah Avenue, the Westchester Square office on Ponton Avenue, the Hunts Point office on Manida Street, the Riverdale post office on Riverdale Avenue and the Baychester office on East Gunhill Road.
