You don't need to see Marj Hendershot at the downtown post office to know she’s there. At the bottom of the marble staircase, the first place customers reach earshot of its cavernous lobby, the sound of her voice is striking. “Soon as you get off the ferry, you can hear me,” Hendershot joked about how far it carries. “But the noise is going away. The cackle is leaving.” Around 40 of Marjorie Ann Hendershot’s 62 years of life have been spent with the United States Postal Service. A charming demeanor, combined with her unmistakable laugh, has made Marj an institution for anyone who’s mailed a package in the city. Hendershot will retire at the end of the month.
