I had a great experience going to the U.S. Post Office to deliver some mail. I greeted the post office employee by saying Hi with a smile and I told the employee that I wanted a first class package. I had a overall positive experience going to the post office.

Keep coming back here to mail letters mostly bills, and don't mind the long lines as(typical of the post office)as I had said in my last review. This place is accessible from the south entrance even though I always enter from the east. This office is real easy for me to get to(not far of a walk.).

Todaay I went to the post office and I had fallen and scraped my knee the day before. And to get in the post office you not only have to climb stairs but they are very. Then when you are get in line to get helped the ropes re closer together so it would be hard to image a person using a wheelchair being able to be in line. Then there is a narrow space between the ropes and the teller.

Although the post office is housed in a sprawled building with multiple entrances, there is only one ramp in the south of the building (on Davis Street) for a person with disabilities. The ramp is narrow, and the small area where it leads to the door is so cramped that if the door were to open this way (which it does!), and the person were to shift to make way, they would slide right back on the ramp!

Although the hallway is huge, the waiting aisles are really narrow, and I don't see how a person on a wheelchair can fit into them. The counters are too high for someone who cannot stand. I have not seen them employ a person with a disability.

I consider it important that a disabled person be able to navigate the premises independently. That will only be possible with a stroke of luck here.

I go here every time I have to mail somethng,and like this post office ,not only is is a big place ,but only one block from where I live.This office has few windows that you can go up to deliver, pickup packages,and buy stamps.There is a letter drop off next to the windows ,with two more letter dropoffs outside of the post office (one east ,and other south of the office).Good place to mail letters
