5. Flushing Post Office
The historic Flushing post office in Flushing, Queens, was built between 1932 and 1934 in the Colonial Revival style, located at 4165 Main Street. It was designed by architects Dwight James Baum and William W. Knowles and is a two-story steel frame buliding clad in red brick with marble trim. Its entrance portico consists of six Ionic columns and is symmetrically massed.
The interior of the building is graced by a series of murals by Vincent Aderente depicting the twelve communities served by the post office. Aderente’s work can also be seen at the Waldorf-Astoria, Queens County Court House, Kings County Hospital, and the Long Island Savings Bank.
