Ridgewood NJ, As you may know, several of the mailboxes in the Central Business District, in and around the area of the Post Office, were forcibly broken into, with the thieves taking all of the mail in the boxes.  It is best if you double check with your billing companies to be sure that they have received your payments, as some of the bills and payment checks that you put into these mailboxes may have been stolen.

The Post Office has indicated that the mailboxes which were forcibly broken into will be replaced with higher security mailboxes, sometime in the future.
