About "Save the Post Office"


Save the Post Office is edited and administered by Steve Hutkins, a literature professor who teaches "place studies" at the Gallatin School of New York University.  Steve lives in a small town in New York's Hudson Valley.  He has no affiliation with the U.S. Postal Service—he doesn’t work for it, nor does anyone in his family.  Like millions of Americans, he just likes his local post office, and he doesn’t want to see post offices being closed. 

This website provides information about the post office closings and consolidations that are taking place, the historic post office buildings that are being sold off, the efforts people are taking to protect their post offices, and the things citizens can do to save their post office when it ends up on the closure list.  If you’d like to drop him a note, just click on the “contact” link at the top.
