The U.S. Postal Service is considering selling a historic office in the Bronx.
In an effort to cut costs, the USPS may sell the property at 558 Grand Concourse and move to another location.
It said that many of the operations it used to perform at the site have been moved to other offices.
The postal service said it has had to cut back on costs significantly over the last three years due to financial issues.
Local residents said they're not happy about the possible closure.
"For them to close would be a hardship," said one resident. "I don't see where it makes any sense."
"That means I have to travel elsewhere," said another. "This is the closest one to me. This is in walking distance."
"The postal service can spend $30 million sponsoring Lance Armstrong, but there's no money to keep Bronx GPO open," said Chuck Zlatkin of the postal union. "There should be an investigation, maybe a criminal investigation."
A rally to save the post office is planned for Wednesday.
