Eighth Avenue post office.

New York’s main post office occupies two city blocks.

Inscribed with, “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.” the James A. Farley Post Office was constructed in two stages. The majestic Eighth Avenue frontage was built in 1912 and the annex was commissioned by then Postmaster General Farley and opened in 1934.
