Astoria was founded by William Hallet and later, Stephen Alling Halsey, it was named for fur tycoon John Jacob Astor. Mansions were built for lumber and shipping magnates in the 1850s, many of which remain standing today. A ferry connected Astoria with 92nd Street in Manhattan between 1867 and the opening of the Triboro in the 1930s.
