Mail boxes

we saw this row of mail boxes somewhere on cape cod. to me this is very american.... 
at our apartment complex we have a mailbox in another building! its further than our apartment (when coming home from the subway), so we dont go there every day. sometimes we even go only once a week! its a tiny mailbox, so when going only once a week it can be pretty full. i really find it weird to have my mail coming in at another building, but i stopped caring about not checking it everyday....

You're right. I think these kind of mailboxes are tipical American. I love the picture, you catched America in a spimple way.

Something old. Something new.

I love these rows of mailboxes, never made a photo of it myself though.

Nice shot! This looks very pretty.

I didn't know this before: The Postal Service won't deliver mail on a private road, so people have to line up their mailboxes where the posties will go. We have neighbors on a private road who live a half mile or more from where their mail is delivered.

They look very different from the Swedish mailboxes. Unusual not to have the mail delivered to your building.
