The United States Postal Service (USPS) recently announced that the Rockaway Beach branch post office — one of thousands being reviewed nationwide for discontinuance — will remain open. Located at 9014 Rockaway Beach Boulevard, the post office branch was saved from the chopping block based on the results of an area facility study, according to the USPS.

“As with every facility study that is conducted in our area, we give a full and fair viewing to the entire package,” said Frank Calabrese, USPS district manager. “In this case, our review showed that closing this Rockaway Beach site was not an appropriate postal decision at this time. We take our service to the community seriously and believe this is the right action, in the right location, for us now.”
