From the outside, the Church Street Post Office appears stout and modest at the corner of Church and Vesey Streets.
But details like the giant, squared-and-stylized eagles perched seven floors up on its Indiana-limestone
façade signal what's inside: a haven of art deco-era designs that have earned it a spot on the National
Historic Landmark register.
