If You Need a 2008 Postmark, Go Early

Most area post offices will be closed at noon today, so if you’ve got an estimated tax payment or charitable contribution that needs to be in the mail by year-end, don’t wait until the last minute.
And while nobody’s expecting the post office to be open tomorrow, on New Year’s Day, expect a reprise of last week’s shortened hours if you try to mail a letter or package on Friday.
Certain north Jersey PO’s will be open until 5 both days. The closest to Baristaville is the one serving 07011 in Clifton. (See the full release after the jump.)
The Montclair YMCA closes at 4 pm today and runs a regular schedule on Friday.
