Ok girls, my family’s going to NYC for the day tomorrow, and FI thought it would be a great idea to send our Christmas cards from there so it will be stamped from there.
We’ll be in Manhattan-mostly around Rock Plaza, but we’re going to the tourist areas-statue of liberty, empire state building, 5th ave. W
Where’s the best post office to go to down there? Or the closest? either one. Everything will be stamped & such, just sending them out.

Ooh, how neat! I have never been to NYC (it’s on our list! hubby has never been, either) but I do have to say that I am tempted to take our XMAS cards with us tmrw and send them from Key West, our first port on our cruise!

There’s one under Rockefeller Center in the Concourse. Just check the hours to make sure they’re open tomorrow.

You might want to head to the big post office on 33rd and 8th – it’s a bit out of your way, but it’s a BEAUTIFUL building, and you could take some adorable pictures as you drop them off at the post office. If you’re doing the full tourist thing in NYC, it’s worth going to visit on its own. It’s on the other side of Penn Station / Madison Square Garden, on 8th Avenue. It’s the James Farley Post Office.

Thre is one right by radio city music hall, which is also next to Rock Center. Its at 52nd street between 8th and 9th avenues. But honestly, you can drop them in any of the blue mailboxes on a corner and they’ll still be stmaped with the NYC info. Unless you’re looking to hand cancel. Have fun being here this weekend!

I just looked at times…the one by Penn Station is open from 9am-9pm, so I might try for there. FI & I went a couple years ago, my parents & bro have never been. It might be cool for them to see the NYC post office! We went there to drop off something with the person we were staying with. We also sent post cards from Rock center, but they’re closed tomorrow.

If you’re just looking for the postmark there’s tons of letter drops allover the place too. There’s also a bunch in grand central that I know of – they’re some kind of brass and they’re cool looking too.
I’m with Gilneas the post office by MSG is really pretty. The steps alone are a photo op.
@ pmerr Bundle up! It’s 26degrees here & with the windchill it’s 13. I know you guys have cold up in Rochester, but there’s nothing as bitter as that wind around the buildings in Rock Cntr. Have Fun! 🙂

As others have said, if you just want the NYC postmark, then just drop them in a blue mailbox on just about any street corner. They are every couple of blocks along the avenues.
If you want to take the time to check out a post office itself then go with the recs from others above.

Hopefully there’s time to go to the one by Penn Station. If not, we’ll have to do the mailboxes!
@dancy-it’s been really windy & cold here too. I think it’s about the same here actually!

I’m back!! We actually didn’t end up taking them 🙁 We finished them up & saw how many cards we have- 75. It looked like too much to carry around & on the bus, so we didn’t mail them from NYC 🙁
We had a great time though! Long day & tiring!
