NEW YORK CITY — You gave them your stamp of disapproval.

Hundreds of readers poured out their tales of horror, frustration and fury after DNAinfo New York asked you to nominate the city's worst post office branch — nominating some of the most abysmal, slowest and rudest across the five boroughs.

In total, 102 branches across the five boroughs were suggested by readers on Neighborhood Square and Facebook, with locations from St. George to Throggs Neck all drawing ire.

In fact, we received so many nominations that we had to agree with Facebook user Merc Mrc, who replied to our thread suggesting: "might as well ask, what's YOUR post office?"

But when we tallied up all the submissions, six received the most nominations. Only one can be crowned the city's worst post office — so vote in the poll below.

Kensington Station led the way with 21 mentions, followed by James E. Davis in Prospect-Lefferts-Gardens with 19, Inwood with 15, Bushwick Station with 12, and Williamsburg at South 4th Street and Shirley Chisholm Station in Bed-Stuy with 11 each.

Here what readers told us about each of the top nominees:


From Neighborhood Square user cara-kantrowitz-george: "When, not if, mail and packages do arrive they are damaged, delayed without cause and misdirected."


►From NSQ user greenbk: "They actually goad people of every walk of life who start out being friendly and cooperative into yelling matches — seen it happen several times."


► From NSQ user apkiwaboo: "I have had MULTIPLE instances where I have caught our carrier leaving a 'we missed you tag', asked for my package and received the answer that 'he didn't have it with him'. Once, he was carefully trying to quietly slide the note under the door while I was right behind it."


► NSQ user JesssicaG: "The USPS service out there is just overall terrible - packages never being delivered, packages labeled as 'delivered' but being nowhere to be found."


► NSQ user activespacestudio: "Filed an 'anonymous' complaint and got a call from the manager who put me on hold for 30 mins after calling ME then YELLED at me for filing a complaint saying I was to blame for lost package."


► NSQ user sarah-anne: "They routinely deliver other people's mail to our apartment and vice versa....it's become a regular thing to have to walk to the next block to re-deliver our neighbors mail."

Now that you've met the contenders, it's time to pick a winner. Let us know in the poll below.
