July 3 - Off the Curb

Mailbox Review # 3: ★★★★☆

Mailbox Review # 3: ★★★★☆

12th & G, NE

One block south of the ever-active H Street, this mailbox's spot is surprisingly serene. While H Street bustled with late night party activity, this street was quiet and peaceful. The mailbox seemed calm and super stable– notice the concrete base? No one is stealing this mail.

Its off-the-curb position might make it less convenient for drivers (or the bikers using the G Street bike lane), but for sidewalk-ers and residents of the nearby apartment complex, I think this is a great spot. Plus, further from the road means that it's less likely to be hit by a car and banged up like Mailbox #2.

Safe, accessible, and with no aggressive graffiti, this mailbox earned four stars.
