The former Irvington Post Office at 5502 East Washington Street has been spared from the wrecking ball. Today, it was announced that the Irvington Development Corporation and the Irvington Historical Society have purchased the building. They will obtain grants to complete much needed structural repairs and they plan to restore the exterior of the building. The organizations will then market the structure to a potential developer or buyer. This is such great news as this corner has long been a troubled spot in Irvington. I commend both organizations for the tenacity and patience it took to obtain this structure.
