USPS Snorkel Collection Box Receptacle

Genus: Littera


The common Blue Box and other types of mailboxes found throughout the Five Boroughs, and the rest of America. The United States Postal Service knits the country together, is a jewel of our country, and must be strengthened and reinforced as a bedrock of our democracy. These boxes are tended by both city residents who regularly – if intermittently – feed it with letters, and postal officials removing waste daily (except for Sundays).
