go inside to look around; mail if you must

Lovely old post office building with a beautiful interior. Well worth a look. For mailing, lines are short, a plus.

I've been going to this Post Office for many years. I especially enjoyed talking with former Customer Service counter Reps., who were courteous & patient. It has vastly changed!

The building is loaded with history from being commissioned by local president FDR to the paintings inside!

One of the older, FDR - era (I think), post offices still around. Cut from stone and marble (?) and has fantastic murals in the lobby. A must see. Postal workers? Eh, same everywhere.

We visited the location a bit late, but we got to see some of the 1st floor details and the second floor. They have gorgeous murals depicting many historic events. there are also rich displays describing chock full of historical information, which we truly enjoyed. The building itself is also a great piece of art.

Lots of history here! Worth a visit if you've got the time. There are stories on the walls about the history of the Post Office and even a picture of FDR at the ribbon cutting ceremony.

Yes, it's a great old building but its not what I would call an attraction by any means. Perhaps a stop for those wishing to take some photos, but that's about it.

The Poughkeepsie Post Office at the intersection of Mansion and Markets Streets was built during the Great Depression as part of the works programs to employ Americans. I've been told that FDR personally participated in the design and materials acquisition. It's sister building is across the street and was originally designed to house The Poughkeepsie Journal Newspaper. Today that building... More

This is the wrong question for a post office. You think one size fits all. It is nonsense to answer this survey, the post office is not a restaurant.
