Lenox Hill Post Office

The Lenox Hill Station post office is located at 217 East 70th Street in Manhattan’s Lenox Hill neighborhood of the Upper East Side. Built in the Colonial Revival style, the post office was constructed in 1935 by Eric Kebbon, who is credited with creating at least six post office buildings. The post office consists of two three-story sections and features a rusticated limestone face on a granite foundation. The building also includes tripartite round-arched windows as well as rectangular sash windows.

The Lenox Hill Station post office was one of 12 post offices built in Manhattan as part of federal relief efforts during the Great Depression, but unlike most of them, Kebbon had complete freedom in designing Lenox Hill Station, serving one of Manhattan’s wealthiest areas. The post office was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1989.
