You’ve Got Mail…But On The Storm-Wracked Coast, Not Where It Usually Is

“Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.”

Mail carriers have doggedly carried out the mission, literally, for centuries now. But a hurricane that knocks out entire buildings is a curve that gives even them trouble.

So if you get your mail in any of the most damage-plagued sections of the Jersey coast, your mail is waiting, just somewhere else temporarily.

  • Toms River: The sprawling main office skirting the river took a significant hit, but two mobile units are operating in the parking lot for stamps and post office box users. Anyone in the 08753 and 08755 zip codes with mail on hold or signature-only release can find it in the Lakewood post office on Swarthmore Avenue. People in 08757 with signature-only deliveries or mail on hold should head to the Toms River Holiday City station.
  • Lavallette and Mantoloking mail is in the Brick Township post office.
  •  Seaside Heights, Seaside Park and Normandy Beach customers will find their mail and a mobile retail unit in the Beachwood facility.
  • Mail destined for Long Beach Island is in the Tuckerton post office on East Main Street.
  • Barnegat Light mail is in the Manahawkin station on East Bay Avenue.
  • Mail for Highlands and Sea Bright is rerouted to the Rumson post office.
  • Oceanport residents can retrieve mail at the Eatontown PD&C building on Industrial Way.
