#341: University District, NE 45th St at 17th Ave NE

341) This box used to live such a wonderful existence. Positioned right across the street from the main entrance to UW, it is on a main migration path for all the pupils who funnel down 17th from the dozens of fraternities, sororities, apartment buildings, and dank basements. There was a time when the box received a constant stream of letters, most of them to parents being asked to send more money. “Nowadays, all those damn kids just use their Instagramcrackers and Snapwhatevers,” the box lamented. “I doubt any of them know which corner of an envelope gets the stamp.”
