Historic Peter Stuyvestant post office to be demolished


The Peter Stuyvesant post office on East 14th Street in Manhattan closed in February of this year, and retail services were recloated down the street.  The Postal Service had been leasing the building, which was constructed for the Department of the Post Office according to its specifications, since 1952.  The building is old enough to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places, but there's not likely to be much opposition to the demolition.  The owners, Benenson Capital Partners, also plan to tear down the adjacent building, which they own.  No word yet on what they plan to build instead.  Read more.
