Astoria

Ethnic Eateries, Beer Gardens, and Local Shops
Astoria is not just New York City's Greek Capital - it is home to many other ethnic communities as well. In addition to its famous Greek tavernas and cafes, Astoria is filled with Mediterranean, Brazilian, Middle Eastern, Baltic, and Indian cuisine. This multicultural neighborhood is also known for its beer gardens and microbrews, like the popular Bohemian Hall & Beer Garden. Besides its prominent eating and dining scene, Astoria offers independent boutiques, retail stores, record shops, art galleries, and cultural spaces. The Museum of the Moving Image is the only institution in the country that explores the art, technology, and impact of film, television and digital media. Residents also enjoy the Kaufman Arts District, Noguchi Museum, and Socrates Sculpture Park.

Laid-back and welcoming Astoria is an affordable option for its middle-class residents. Buildings for rent include low-rise apartments and townhouses. The budget-friendly restaurants and inexpensive amenities, as well as the easy commute to Midtown, attract a younger crowd. Long-time residents and young professionals call this diverse neighborhood home.

Great food. A couple of cool bars. Not a strong nightlife scene. Safe. Could use a better park.
