KEW GARDENS, QUEENS — The Kew Gardens post office renewed its lease for another five years, U.S. Rep. Grace Meng announced Tuesday.

The post office's current lease was set to expire July 31, 2021, but the renewal means it can stay put until July 31, 2026.

Kew Gardens residents have voiced concerns for at least a decade that their United States Postal Service office will relocate from the Austin Street location it's called home since 1951.

"The decision to renew the lease for the Kew Gardens Post Office is great news for the community," Meng said. "I thank the Postal Service for its commitment to this facility, and to those who live in the area. This post office provides important postal services to neighborhood residents at a convenient location, and I'm pleased that it will continue to serve the community for years to come."
