Starrett City has an extremely small post office that can get quite crowded. Lines can be especially long during Christmas and tax season. TIP: If you want a big package delivered to you in Starrett, It is suggested you avoid using the United States Postal Service for this type of delivery. If you are not home, they will leave the package at the Canarsie Post Office and not the one in Starrett. You will have to go all the way over to Canarsie for pick-up. Use UPS or another courier instead if you have the choice.
For a place that is home to lower and lower middle income residents, Starrett City maintains an impressive park-like environment that haven't gone to ruin. Starrett's maintenance workers are largely to thank for this. Not as spectacular as back in the early 80's when Starrett was so pristine that you could walk on grass barefooted without concern for broken glass or liter, but that was another place and time. The nice park scenery is still enjoyable to stroll around in, especially in good weather.
