Georgetown Station Post Office
This post office warrants special attention due to the rather monumental building in which it is housed. Originally built as a customs house, it is made of sturdy granite and has two sets of shallow steps, also granite, leading up to its over sized doors. The inside is majestic and still functions as a regular post office. A visit here kills two birds with one stone; you can view a historic site, and buy stamps for those postcards you have been meaning to send!
I go to this post office weekly and it's lovely to look at/appreciate. No issues with heat or air, in my experience.
It closes AT FIVE, and sometimes a minute or two before, so don't try and cut it close-- they will not care, period.
Still, it's the prettiest post office I've ever been to, and the fact that it's in such a stately building makes waiting in line more pleasant. One of the clerks once told me that it's the oldest continuously functioning post office in the country! When I'm getting impatient, I remember that and feel lucky to be there. :)
A little pricey but the food and service was great. We had spent all day touring D.C. and wanting to experience Georgetown. It was a June evening so comfort wasnt a factor. The only reason I give it 4 starts instead of 5 is because the portion size was just a little smaller then I would have liked.
I dislike the fact that while in there I Felt like I was outside. It was sooooo cold. It was unbelieveable. The temperature inside was worst than outside. The clerks were pleasant considering they had on coats and hats. My feet were freezing and hands cold. My postcard could not written without gloves on. Do these poor people a favor and maintain the building as good as it looks.
