Delivering the Block
Delivering the block is a multimedia project documenting the Nadie, a U.S. Postal Service mail carrier delivering mails in Prospect Height during the lockdown as a result of COVID-19. To Nadine, a mail carrier at the U.S. Postal Service, she is not one of the lucky ones to work from home. Her work is essential. She has to go to work every day to deliver mail, letters, newspapers, drugs, etc. to various apartments buildings in prospect height, Brooklyn. Her daily routes have become longer; she spends more time delivering more mails than she used before the lockdown. The packages have increased in more folds. Nadine migrated from Jamaica to New York. With the growing sentiment toward immigrants, and the financial burden of USPS, it’s surprising to see Nadine as essential in times of a epidemic in the United States of America.
