Bronx residents say postal trucks ruining local parking
Bronx residents say post office trucks are adding to parking problems.
The intersection at West 230th Street and Broadway is often bustling with traffic and pedestrians. It's often hard to park in the area, and Bronx residents say the postal trucks taking up parking spots have made it nearly impossible.
Residents say that many of the street signs near the Kingsbridge Post Office are either meter parking, no parking or taken up by postal trucks. The post office has a garage, but residents say it's completely full most days.
"It's difficult, because you need those spaces," said local resident Everlyn, who says she often has to hunt for parking.
Other residents say that the issue is overblown, and that parking problems are just part of living in New York City.
News 12 reached out to the United States Postal Service office and received the following response:
"The Postal Service is responsible for the daily delivery of Kingsbridge mail and packages six and often seven days a week. To meet the demands of our customers, we must maintain an adequate delivery footprint in each of the communities we serve.
That said, postal managers are in receipt of the concerns shared by News12 and will evaluate local vehicle options in the interest of our customers. The Postal Service remains committed to working within the Bronx community to be a good neighbor, while providing excellent service to customers."
