Video: USPS stops delivery to Bronx building because carrier is too short to reach boxes

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Residents of a Bronx building say they haven’t been getting their mail lately, and they say were told it is all because the postal carrier is too short to reach the mailboxes.

As CBS2’s Dave Carlin reported, the mail has been missing for every tenant in the building on Aldus Street. One resident, Lynette Hargrove, came to the local Post Office to find out why and said she was shocked by the supervisor’s answer.

“The mail carrier is too short to deliver,” Hargrove said.

Hargrove knows the carrier, who several tenants said has been delivering their mail for a year. For some reason two weeks ago, that changed.
