Queens Private Sightseeing Tour

Astoria, as you might guess, was named for millionaire merchant John Jacob Astor, in the hopes that America’s then-richest man might bestow some of his fortune on this area of northwestern Queens. He eventually invested $500 in the area, but reportedly never set foot there. Today, Astoria is one of New York City’s most culturally diverse neighborhoods and home to cultural institutions, food destinations, and shopping. Known primarily as a traditionally Greek neighborhood, Astoria is home to a significant number of residents of Italian, Brazilian, Baltic, Irish, and Egyptian descent, as well as a new set of émigrés – young, hip, creative types drawn to the neighborhood’s affordable housing, inexpensive amenities and short commute to Manhattan. There is much to enjoy in the neighborhood.
