In some tiny towns, the post office is the center of all social activity…plus it could be 20 miles until the next one. So the news that many small post offices might close caused ruffled feathers all over the country. But the Mid-Hudson News reports that some of those upstate New York post offices slated for closure will probably get to remain open after all, as long as they cut the hours. Here’s the list (including some non-rural, suburban branches, too): Fremont Center, North Branch, Pond Eddy, Highland Lake, North Hudson, Sleepy Hollow, Yonkers South and Sandford Station in Mount Vernon.
