Bronx residents go 2 months with no mail- USPS fixes problem when TV news crew shows up

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.
