United States Post Office

Landmarks of New York
The older section of this Romanesque Revival building was begun in 1885 and completed in 1892. The plans of Mifflin E. Bell, the original architect, were modified by William A. Freret, his successor as supervising architect of the Treasury Department, while the building was under construction. The addition was begun in 1930 and finished three years later.

Main Brooklyn Post Office

Designated Landmark New York City
Located in the new Municipal Center, this handsome 19th century structure provides a reminder of Brooklyn's past. Completed in 1891, the basement and first floors display handsome rock-faced granite, which contrasts with the smooth stone front of the remainder of the building. The Post Office has a wealth of skillfully blended Romanesque Revival, French and German Renaissance details. A well-designed northerly extension to the building was completed in 1933 which adheres faithfully to the original portion facing Johnson Street.
