About 20 years ago, the letter-mailing boxes vanished from our shopping centers and downtown. Suddenly mailing a letter was a major project, often forcing me to carry a letter around for days in the car.

Calling them got me no information. But finally, I found a man in Norwalk who had the list in front of him. Let me have a copy? Refused. Read it to me on the phone? Refused. After half an hour, he and I found it on the USPS website (https://tools.usps.com/go/POLocatorAction!input.action), but it was so poorly set up that neither of us could understand it.

Finally, after years of frustration, plus an hour on the clumsy website, I have clawed out the secret list, and I suggest you cut it out of this page because you won't find it anywhere else.
