tlonal buildings near the Oeneral Post |

sylvania Railroad site between Thirty- J
flrst and Thirty-third streets, west of,
Eighth avenue and east of Ninth ave- ,
nue. and the leasing of a site from the I
Grand Central on Thirtieth street between
Ninth and Tenth avenues. Speaking
of these proposals, the report says:
"It should be said that land values In
New York are fkaturally high, but the
receipts of the New York office last
year were $53,301,498, and they are
increasing at the rate of approximately
10 per cent, per annum, so that at the
end of the ten year period for which
provision Is being made they will approximate
"The acquisition of this site will give
opportunity to segregate a very large
volume of outgoing parcel post matter,
the desirability of affecting which segregation
in certain cases has been urged
before and will serve a very useful
purpose In affording the business section
a station for the deposit of bulk
mail. The plan outlined Includes the
abandonment of the present foreign station.

Grand Central Station of many of the
activities there conducted, and the
reallocation of space of all branches of
the post ofllce and railway mall service
now located In the General Post Office.
City Hall Station Crowded.
"Investigation made by the commission
ha3 shown the urgent need of relieving
the situation at the City Hall
station, for many years known as the
General Post Office, and which Is located
In the midst of New York's greatest
office buildings. The receipts of
this station are as great as the receipts
of the entire city of St. Louis, which
from the standpoint of postal revenues
ranks fifth among the cities of the
Referring to the exhaustive investigation
made by the commission of the
New York situation, the report states
that special attention has been given
to the following:
The seapost. the harbor boat service,
space requirements, the separation of
parcel post from letter mall, breakage
and depredation, the efficient and economical
handling of the parcel post, the
motor vehicle service, transmittal of
mall by pneumatic tubes and centralization
The seapost, the report states, may
bo resumed by the Poet Office Department.
Before the war It was operated
between this country and Great Britain.
Germany. France, the Canal Zone and
Porto Rico. Legislation Is not necessary
for Its resumption, It is staged.
It la said harbor boat service has been
resumed and hence no recommendation
Discussing the parcel post situation
the report states that this class of matl
has reached such volume that provision
must be made for additional facilities
In both the railway matl and the post
office. The proposed new buildings. It
Is considered, will take care of these
needs, the report asserting that "once
these facilities are made available the
problem Involved In the segregation of
the parcel post can be solved by administrative
action, resulting In Improved
service and more economical operation
without the necessity of legislation
looking to separation of parcel post
from letter malls."
Wo Action on Motor Vehicles.
The situation regarding the motor vehicle
service la reviewed, but wlUiout

theae are "exclusively administrative
problems requiring no legislative action."
The testimony on this question has been
rererrea 10 uie i obi umce uepanmeni
The question of centralisation and decentralisation
also Is left to the Post
Office Department as an administrative
The commission declines to make any
recommendat'on on the proposed tunnel
from the Grand Central Station to the
General Postoffice. "Thus far," the report
says, "no franchise has been secured.
No legislative action Is called
for. No recommendation can me made
at this time "
The report discloses that certain
recommendations have been made by engineers
employed by the commission
which have not yet been put In effect
"The Investment of the 6 per cent
postal savings ressrvj will earn about
$400,000 a year.
The elimination of the Federal bulld*
Ing clause, the ninety day cancellation
clause and the furniture requirements
from post office leases will save at least
1 $1,000,000 a year, and probably over
$2,000,000. The department Is paying
from $1.60 to $2 a square foot a year
for property with a sale value of only
$1 to $8 a square foot"
