Astoria, Queens

Affordable (compared to Manhattan) two-story homes dominate the largely residential areas of Astoria, Queens.

Immigrants from around the world mean a diverse selection of good, affordable authentic food.

I love this short Astoria bakery tour video clip. (Also check out this Jackson Heights Little India clip).

View of the Robert F. Kennedy/Triborough Bridge from Astoria Park on the East River.

View of Manhattan and the Empire State Building in the distance.

Under the Hell's Gate Bridge.

Kids splashing around in the Astoria Pool.

And the long line to get into the pool.
