The Vermilyea Post Office begins its new hours today, pushing its opening time from 8 a.m to 9 a.m. all week. Hours are now:
Monday through Friday: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Saturday: 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
This comes on the heels of the Post Office's announcement that it may close the Tejada Post Office on West 180th Street in June. If service weren't already so bad at these locations it might be a bigger loss for the neighborhood, but as it stands, most people living here would rather visit a post office in the heart of Times Square than spend a moment at this Inwood spot.
