From the Queens Chronicle:
The Grand Station post office in Astoria has been removed from the U.S. Postal Service's list of thousands of facilities that may be closed to save money, Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-Manhattan and Queens) announced Tuesday afternoon.
Area residents and elected officials had strongly objected to the possible closure, saying the Grand Station, located at 45-08 30 Ave., is heavily used and necessary to the community. They staged two rallies to save it since its possible closure was announced last summer.
