USPS may stamp out 8 Bronx post offices

THE BRONX - The United States Postal Service is considering the closure of eight Bronx post offices in an effort to close a gap in its budget.The list of possible closures, which may go into effect Oct. 1, includes the Botanical, Bronx Hub, Clason Point, Crotona Park, Hillside, Melcourt, Oak Point and Van Nest offices. The USPS may close or consolidate as many as 1,000 post offices nationwide.
