Welcome to Centers and Squares

As a Cambridge real estate agent, the city squares of Cambridge, Somerville and Medford and the town centers of Arlington, Watertown and Belmont, Massachusetts are my home turf. And as a lifelong New Englander who’s lived within twenty miles of Boston most of my life, I can introduce you to other nearby towns as we search for your new home. If you’re planning to sell your home in Cambridge, MA or nearby you’ll find plenty of info about the home selling process here too. Questions? Send me an email or call me at 617-504-1737.

Local Post Offices Threatened With Closure

Massachusetts Post Offices May Be Closed

Massachusetts Post Offices May Be Closed

As a Cambridge real estate agent I tend to do more mailings than most people – doing my part to keep the post office running.  I have my favorite post office branches and was dismayed to learn that several of my favorite local post offices are threatened with closure.

The USPS is deciding whether or not to close some 3,700 post office branches that don’t do enough business by their estimation.  Forty-three Massachusetts post offices are on the list of post offices that may be closed. Half a dozen branches in Centers and Squares territory are threatened with closure.  If you do any mailing, believe me, these are the branches you don’t want to see closed – you can usually get in and out in less than 20 minutes – not the case in other post offices. 

You can help by patronizing these post offices before it’s too late – post office traffic will be studied through the end of the year.  So head on out – buy some stamps, send some letters, mail some packages – or the next time you do it’s likely to be a long wait. Here are the nearby post offices that may be closed:

  • Arlington Heights at  1347 Mass Ave Arlington 02476
  • East Arlington at  240 Mass Ave Arlington 02474
  • Inman Square at  1311 Cambridge St Cambridge 02139
  • West Medford  485 High Street Medford MA 02155
  • East Watertown Watertown MA 02472
  • New Town  123 Galen St Watertown  02472

Additionally, the post office branches at MIT and at Tufts may be closed.

The lines at the main post offices are unconscionably long.  I can’t bear the thought of having to devote a morning to mail a package.  I’ll be making my rounds, doing my part at my favorite local post offices.  See you in the short line!

    Boston is about to see some post office closings but I don’t think we are alone. Much of the U.S is seeing some down time with postal mail and other cities will follow.
