Where are the mailboxes in the neighborhood?

Photo by Laughing Squid
A reader posed a good question:
I work in CH and sometimes I just gotta mail an actual card through snail mail... I have lot of kid nieces and nephews and they like to get paper cards.  Where are the freaking mailboxes in CH?  I know there's one on the corner of Mt Pleasant and Irving but where are others?  Are there any on 14th St between the Giant all the way up to Dunkin Donuts?  I can't find any and it's a PITA.
Anyone? I know there's one at 13th and Girard, but otherwise I'm stumped. Post them in the comments and I'll add them to the web map:

There's one at 16th and Newton on the northeast corner by the church.

They took the one out at 14th and Monroe - I miss it so.

http://www.mailboxmap.com/ Check only the Blue box - not the USPS or UPS

I swear there used to be one on 14th and Meridian that is not there anymore!

The UPS Store on 14th and Monroe (next to Ruby Tuesday) has a mail slot for USPS.

There WAS one at 14th and Meridian, right across from the Allegro, but it was REMOVED in the last few weeks!

They're on the USPS site. There's 25 of them within 1 mile of 20010.

Yeah there are several that have disappeared around 14th and Newton. What's going on? There was one that used to be up the street from Subway and one that used to be across from Thaitanic. My office and myself used these regularly..we're pretty bummed out.

AMEN!!!!
I emailed and called our congressional rep Ms. E. H. Norton. Her office told me USPS is cutting back and deliberately took them away and is planning on removing several more.

A staffer called and told me apparently we don't need them. Anyone can use the coutesy drop in the UPS Store on 14th and Monroe and several apt building have drops for their residents.

I was not satified.

There is one at 10th and Otis too.

It's amazing to me that I can walk from home to the Metro, past Giant, Target, all that stuff, and not see a mailbox.

Fine if they want to get rid of some of the random ones (like, er, 10th and Otis, which is actually quite near my home but I can't convince myself that it's real because it's so random). But it's insane to not have one somewhere it sight of the Metro or the shopping center.
