Astoria is a scintillating blend of old-world culture and contemporary lifestyle. Idyllic tree-lined streets provide a quiet and easygoing backdrop for a community full of energy and excitement. Known as one of the most ethnically diverse neighborhoods on Earth, Astoria boasts cuisines from nearly every nationality and is renowned for their Greek and Mediterranean fare. Local staples like the Bohemian Hall and Beer Garden and Taverna Kyclades draw patrons in from across the city, exposing new generations to this beautiful and eclectic neighborhood.
In addition to its exotic fare and thriving night life, Astoria is quickly becoming one of the most celebrated artistic destinations in New York City. Set against the backdrop of the Manhattan skyline and the East River, the Astoria waterfront arts scene features projects by more than 150 local and international artists, with exhibits at renowned galleries like the Socrates Sculpture Park and Noguchi Museum, as well as the Welling Court Mural Project, a public art experience spread across dozens of city streets.
