Brooklyn Residents Take On Postal Service Over Parking Spots

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – An ongoing battle between some residents in Brooklyn and their local post office has intensified and crossed over into vandalism.

An angry message has been delivered to the United States Postal Service in Park Slope: No parking on our street.

Residents living near the Van Brunt post office on 9th Street say they are so sick of post office trucks parking on the residential street behind the facility. The trucks take a precious, hard-to-find public parking spot, even though the post office has its own private lot for the trucks.

On Wednesday morning, a post office truck was spray painted with graffiti demanding “No parking on 8 street.”
