No Blue Mailboxes?

My wife and I went for a walk last night downtown. Our purpose was two-fold.

1. get some fresh air, and see what 16th st looked like. Talk about a police presence. Man they were everywhere! i wasn’t sure I should feel safe, or trapped.

2. we had to mail a book for my wife’s paperback exchange.

We headed down to where we thought we remembered some Blue boxes being. Nothing.

Then we headed over to the Downtown Post Office, where we KNEW there were blue boxes… nothing.

What? We looked around and sure enough, there were cut bolts in the sidewalk.

Anyone else seen or heard anything about removing the blue mailboxes? I’m guessing it’s a DNC thing, but jeez. They coming back?

    As part of the security measures for the DNC, all drop boxes and mail boxes, whether public or private access, have been removed from Downtown Denver. I think they are going to put them back afterward, but at the moment they are regarded as possible bomb repositories rather than handy ways to store and pass on mail or delivery packages.

    figured that was the logic applied. I hope they put them back, while not a common everyday item, it’s a PITA when you need one and can’t find it, even at the post office.
