MOUNT KISCO, N.Y. -- While nearly 3,700 post offices around the country are being reviewed by The United States Postal Service for possible closure, the Mt. Kisco Post Office appears to remain safe.
Post offices may seem like a thing of the past with the popularity of e-mail, but many people still look at this building as something that pulls the town together.
Its the heart of the town, Allegra Dengler said, after dropping off a letter at the Mt. Kisco Post Office. It gives you a feeling that youre in town.
Robert Attanasio has worked in the postal service for 27 years, most of them at the Mt. Kisco office, and he said he believes that the postal industry will not go under any time soon.
People like to receive cards and the personal items that e-mail cant do, he said.
Many people, including Barbara Sullivan a local patron of the Mt. Kisco Post Office, dont buy into e-mail too much either.
Im living back in the dark ages, Barbara Sullivan jokes. Im not a computer person.
Despite having five kids, 10 grandchildren and a great-grandchild on the way, Sullivan would rather make a phone call or send a card to her family members than rely on e-mail.
Sullivan, who had just left the Mt. Kisco Post Office after mailing a card to her sister, said shes always enjoyed coming there and usually picks it over the Bedford Hill Post Office that is a little closer to her house.
Sullivan even remembers walking to the old post office in Mt. Kisco that was located on E. Main Street, something she said she always enjoyed and became part of her routine.
