From the Times Ledger:
A pioneering Queens politician will soon get a very public tribute after U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and U.S. Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-Astoria) announced last week that the U.S. Senate passed a bill to rename the Long Island City Post Office as the “Geraldine Ferraro Post Office Building” in honor of the former Queens prosecutor, congresswoman from Queens and first female vice presidential candidate.
The House of Representatives passed the bill in May. The post office, at 46-02 21st St., is not the Long Island City branch slated for possible closure by the U.S. Postal Service.
