WABC in New York has a report on an apartment building where residents have gone without mail delivery because of vandalized mailboxes. A few hours after the WABC news crew showed up at the post office, though, the problem had been miraculously repaired, and all of the mail delivered:
NEW YORK (WABC) — Most of us pick up our mail on a daily basis without giving it a second thought, just grabbing it from our mailbox.
But for dozens of people in the Bronx, it got much more complicated.
"It just opens like that?" 7 On Your Side’s Nina Pineda asked.
"Yeah," said Rita Davies, Co-op City resident.
"So you haven’t gotten your mail in two months?" Pineda asked,
"No," Davies said.
A supervisor said she was aware of the problem.
But, just a few hours after 7 On Your Side’s visit there was progress.
All of the locks were fixed and mail delivered.
