Stephanie Hogue remembers Prince Postale:

Prince Postale was a neighborhood within the neighborhood, where you befriended people you might otherwise never meet. North Bennet Street School students, life-long North Enders, transplants, the young and the rest of us, all participated in the wacky, wonderful improvisation that was Prince Postale. So raise your coffee or your tea, your burrito or your slush, and let’s applaud the Postale, where everyone really did know your name or would before you left.
