10. Long Island City Post Office

Long Island City Post Office by Warren & Wetmore

The Long Island City post office at 4602 21St Street is a historic post office in Long Island City, Queens, that was built in 1928 in the Colonial Revival style. The post office was one of several designed by lawyer and administrator James A. Wetmore, Acting Supervising Architect of the U.S. Office of the Supervising Architect. Strangely, despite his role, Wetmore was not a professional architect, and he did not design many of the federal buildings that bear his name.

The structure is a two-story, symmetrical brick building with limestone trim, and it features four limestone Ionic columns at its frontispiece. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1989.
