"Minutes from the city but miles away from it" Astoria by penpoison

Astoria Travel Guide: 11 reviews and 42 photos

Astoria is in the boro of Queens. Queens is one of the most diverse neighborhoods in NYC. Astoria has been known as a greek enclave so there are a good variety of greek restaurants to visit there. I took a historical tour of Astoria but I found some gems there. Unfortunately some of the architectural gems are private residences and are not open to the public but available either through a private tour group such as the historical society.

    Thanks for the birthday wishes. The snow caught up to us in Chicago on the way home. We were supposed to have gone through Dallas not Chicago but that's another story.
