BROOKLYN — In October of last year postal officials were notified that the USPS was losing the lease for the space where the Pratt Station is located at 524 Myrtle Avenue, Brooklyn NY 11205. The building owner has other plans for the space. The lease agreement expires this year.
Postal officials have been working with local elected officials during the process of finding possible new commercial space in the same vicinity as the present location of the Pratt Station. The USPS Facilities Service Center and local real estate professionals have identified several possible sites.
Local elected officials were notified of this new information and a notice was posted in the lobby of the Pratt Station for customers who frequent the office. Any member of the community has the opportunity to mail in written comments to the address provided on the posting. No decision on a new site will be made until after public comments are reviewed and evaluated.
Once a suitable replacement site has been agreed on and secured, the USPS anticipates relocating in the near future.
The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses, and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
