What's a mailbox?

This story is running.

To help celebrate the 30th anniversary of Star Wars this year the United States Postal Service will be rolling out mailboxes that have been completely wrapped in custom R2-D2 graphics.

They’re not going to fool anyone into thinking it’s an actual astromech droid ready to deliver your postcard to Obi-Wan but they get the idea across. And I think it’s a good idea these will only be appearing at US Post Offices since if they were installed on the streets something tells me they wouldn’t be around for long.

My question - when did anyone last see a mailbox out on the street? I don't know if it was 9/11 or what, but I haven't seen one in years.
