The USPS moved our office which was in the Alphabet District to another location.
It is not a safe location, as it is deserted and is surrounded by homeless people (not that they are all dangerous, but they attract nutcases who don’t like them and some are dangerous).
While Mitchell went in to try to find someone (they still do not have anyone at the counter during normal work hours) I sketched the place quickly.
They have made no effort to make it a hospitable location. It is all weeds, with the exception of a huge wild plant on one side and hedges on the street. It has poor parking, which is not good if you have to park and walk in that neighborhood alone as a woman.
Finally, they have created what I am now calling rape alleys within the layout (see the small drawing below). The boxes are located in long narrow corridors that lead nowhere, and you could easily get cornered while getting your mail. Obviously no one with a yoni designed the interior, as they were not thinking — but truth is, that a man could also be mugged in that long corridor when few people are around. There is absolutely NO excuse for this layout other than whomever did it is a bad designer, IF indeed any kind of designer did this. I could do ten different layouts in my sleep that are better than this. They don’t want to hear it. And no one is taking credit for this wonderful stroke of genius.
Yes, pissed. We now are moving our mail slowly somewhere else.

That annoying loud-mouth editor/critic in your head?
GONE! How great would that be?
How did this pass building or zoning laws? I’m surprised locals didn’t protest the design. How awful.
People don’t pay attention IF they did that!
