Albany's downtown post office is expected to remain open after the U.S. Postal Service signed a year-lease. The U.S. Postal Service had proposed shutting down the Albany post office on Broad Avenue as it deals with severe financial challenges. Community leaders and residents had protested the move.
The U.S. Postal Service is planning to close a 100-year-old post office in downtown Albany, a decision locals worry will hurt downtown. Now officials are optimistic mail service could continue in the historic space with a private company taking over.
