Williamsburg Photo Du Jour: No Problem

Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.

The James Farley Post Office in our fair city proclaims just this! Contrary to popular belief, this is not the motto of the United States Postal Service. It is derived from Herodotus‘s account of the couriers of the Persian Empire. The above (which hails from Richardson Street) is, conversely, 100% Brooklyn.

Speaking as someone who has had her mail stolen*, I want to see THIS carved in stone.

Miss Heather

P.S.: I don’t know who this mailman is but I want him (or her) on my route.

*An unemployment check no less. Endorsed in shaky handwriting and presented at a local check cashing establishment. It was seized. In a nutshell: someone who is clearly NOT Polish should not try to cash checks issued to someone with a clearly Slavic name in Greenpoint. AKA: Little Poland. This isn’t racism. This is common sense.

  2. HA – awesome.
    Except, people who deliver the mail do not deliver newspapers.
    Then again, maybe the newspaper delivery person is named “Mailman” (would be interesting synergy there!)

Tell me what you're thinking...
