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.

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.
