Knickerbocker Post Office at 128 E. Broadway

The Knickerbocker Station post office is a historic post office at 128 East Broadway around Manhattan’s Chinatown. The building was one of twelve post offices built in mid-1930s Manhattan as part of federal relief efforts during the ongoing Great Depression. Knickerbocker Station was designed by William Dewey Foster, who helped increase the workload of New Deal projects while working with the Office of the Supervising Architect.

The Colonial Revival-style building was constructed out of brick and includes a mansard roof and granite trim. Knickerbocker Station also features black window frames and a circular emblem above the second floor windows.
