Despite long lines, residents will be sad to see the Clinton Hill post office go

The Clinton Hill post office has been located on Myrtle Avenue since 1950, but 64 years of residency does not guarantee its remaining in this location forever. Due to the expiration of their lease and the landlord’s plan to do something else with the space, the Clinton Hill post office is being forced to move.

The move is due to take place early this year, and this has residents of Clinton Hill worried in case the post office ends up being far away.

“As you can see, I can’t walk that good,” said 81-year-old Sheila McRee. She was walking with difficulty down the three steps to the entrance of the Clinton Hill post office. “So it would be a problem.”

Residents fear that the post office may be forced to move to the Cadman Plaza office building in Brooklyn Heights, making it quite inconvenient.

“I can’t get up all those steps,” Edna Grant, 74, of Clinton Hill said. “It’s terrible trying to get up in there.”

The post office branch in Boerum Hill is facing the same issue.
