Will Miss The Boxes

Will Miss The Boxes

Dear Editor;

Those postal relay boxes slated for removal may seem like an "eyesore" to some, but to me they're just another disappearing reminder of my childhood in Rockaway.

I recently returned to Rockaway for my grandmother's funeral. While out walking, I noticed the green postal boxes still existed. It was sort of comforting to see this relic, which reminded me of walks as a small child with my grandfather. He'd lift me up to sit on these boxes (namely the one on Newport and 120), and watch, as I'd slide down the side.

I'll be sad to see the boxes removed, but I suppose time moves on.
