Since moving to Astoria in 2005, I have developed a great fondness for this community, and am happy to call it home. The neighborhood has so much to offer - great food, diverse cultures, excellent shopping, the arts, and the magnificent Astoria Park, a gem in the NYC parks system. I look forward to sharing my love of Astoria with you.
