Astoria

Astoria

Originally called Hallett's Cove, Astoria was renamed after John Jacob Astor who was once the wealthiest man in America. It has long been a popular place to live due to it's proximity to Midtown Manhattan. The neighborhood is served by the N, W, R, M, and E lines. There are many bus options as well and a newly built ferry station on the East River. The neighborhood is mostly middle class and commercial. There are plenty of restaurants and shops to chose from all along Steinway St., Ditmars. Blvd, 30th Ave. & Broadway. It is also home to the world famous piano company Steinway & Sons. Other points of interest include, Kaufman Studios, the Museum of Moving Image, Isamu Noguchi Museum, Bohemian Hall(oldest beer garden in NYC) Socrates Sculpture Park & Astoria Park. At about 59.96 acres, Astoria Park is one of the largest in Queens and has the most beautiful views of the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge & Hell's Gate Bridge. Within the park is Astoria Pool, the oldest and largest pool in NYC. Highly desirable, Astoria is surely a one of a kind neighborhood.
