Just a twenty minute subway ride away from Times Square, Astoria is a multicultural enclave with deep Greek and Italian roots. This hot Queens neighborhood is known for its many art institutions like the Museum of Moving Images, Socrates Sculpture Park, and Noguchi Museum. Residents love the beautiful, outdoor green spaces and spend their summer days relaxing in leafy Astoria Park and Rainey Park and enjoying the riverfront views. With plenty of mom and pop shops, their own Little Egypt, and annual festivals to attend, Astoria is a charming neighborhood that’s been drawing in new crowds of residents. Make sure to stop by for a pitcher of German or Czech beer at New York City’s oldest beer garden, the Bohemian Hall & Beer Garden.
