The town of Cato is in Cayuga County, which is kind of a weird geographical county. Cayuga County is often thought of as a Finger Lakes location, and it totally is. But the county actually stretches all the way up to the southern shore of Lake Ontario. In that northern half, just a few clicks north of the thruway you’ll find Cato. The town also includes part of the village of Cato, and the entire village of Meridian. So there’s a lot going on there with municipal boundaries.
Their post office for zip code 13033 is located on Route 370, which I was driving westward to get back home to Rochester from my trip to Oswego County. I don’t think I even got out of the car for this one. I just pulled over, rolled the window down, and snapped a picture. This one isn’t particularly noteworthy in its appearance or history, so it didn’t seem to warrant hanging around too long.
Either way, seeing the Post Office in Cato, New York in zip code 13033 can officially be checked off the list!
