NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A United States Postal Service mailman in Manhattan, who once was a firefighter in South Korea, is retiring.
Now, Isoo Choi wants to share what he’s learned along the way.
For the last 20 years, he’s carried mail for the USPS. Before the South Korean immigrant retires at the end of the month, there’s one last message he wants to deliver: Open your heart to others and listen.
“It is like a school, this earth, we are learning,” he said.
The Rockland County man has commuted to the Upper East Side for more than a decade. Just the other day, he slipped a farewell note to residents on East 88th Street, explaining he’s retiring and he wanted to thank them for helping him live the American Dream.
