Roosevelt Island Post Office Still Being Considered For Possible Closing - Report Last Week Was Wrong - I Apologize For Incorrect Conclusion

I reported last Thursday that the Roosevelt Island Post Office was no longer being considered by the US Postal Service for closure based upon this CNN article and announcement from the USPS on possible facilities to be closed.

I asked Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney's office to confirm that the Roosevelt Island Post office was no longer in danger of being closed. Today I learned that my previous post was incorrect.

Responding to my inquiry, Congresswoman Maloney reports:
The USPS announcement last week involved processing facilities being considered for possible closure did not affect or relate to the previous announcement about postal stations being considered for closure.  Regrettably, there is no new information regarding the Postal Service’s review of post offices like the one on Roosevelt Island; I am continuing to advocate forcefully for Roosevelt Island Station to remain open.
