The James A. Farley Post Office has been around since 1912—the time these photos were taken—and is the main post office building in New York City. Do you think people complained about the service back then? Click through for what looks like a very enjoyable postal experience. Really! Things are a lot more crowded around those parts these days. And the mail sorters probably aren't wearing nice vests and ties. In other words, this is a post office we could get behind saving, or at the very least, makes us pine for handwritten letters.
The building itself was landmarked in 1966, and as you know from Miracle of 34th Street, Operation Santa, and of course, tax day, it's located at 421 8th Avenue.
