Bronx Central Post Office


The Bronx Central Post Office, which dates back to 1937, is notable for the 13 large murals on its walls. The pieces, inspired by Walt Whitman's poem "I Hear America Singing," depict everyday people doing the jobs that keep the City and country running. They were finished in 1939 by painter Ben Shahn and his wife, Bernarda.
