I visited each of these locations in the spring. First up, let's see the grand '30s-era Rutherford, NJ Main Post Office:
Generally speaking, these offices lie in a line, and are about a mile apart from each other.
1. Rutherford, NJ: Wood-Ridge Branch post office:
Can't believe this wouldn't make enough revenue to make keeping this around worthwhile.
2. Rutherford, NJ: Carlstadt Branch post office:
It doesn't look like much (something like a converted fire house?), but there were customers in there when I came knockin'.
3. Rutherford, NJ: East Rutherford Branch post office:
A distinct community that seemed populated enough to me; closure of this would be odd, even if it's just a mile from the Rutherford main office.
4. Rutherford, NJ: East Rutherford Parcel Post [Carrier] Annex:
This I could see as an obvious candidate for closure, as USPS carriers all across the country have been playing the postal equivalent of musical chairs as a result of centralized operations known as "Delivery Unit Optimization". It's my guess that the carriers, with their "diminished workloads", could be easily shoved into the back of the Rutherford main office, as the postal service has been doing all around the country. I'm sure this facility would bring in some money from some business looking for a warehouse.
