Astoria Park Greenway Professional Reviews and Guides

"Only Athens, it’s been said, has more Greeks than Astoria. For many years, and to many people, that was Astoria’s No. 1 identity, although Mediterranean would be more accurate because it’s also had a lot of Italians and Croatians. Since the 1990s, Astoria has become more of a polyglot, with a significant influx of Bangladeshis, Egyptians, and Brazilians among other nationalities. Characterizing Astoria these days, however, you might bypass ethnicity altogether and refer to hipsters, artists, or some other term conjuring trendy and creative people. On this route, you will see the influence of the diverse populations who have called Astoria home over the years, going all the way back to founder Stephen Halsey and his neighbors. Halsey, who bought land in the area after admiring it from the ferry on his commute between Flushing and Manhattan, had the village of Astoria incorporated in 1839. He named it after John Jacob Astor, just like the town in Oregon that Halsey’s brother John had founded on a fur-trading expedition financed by Astor (the multimillionaire never went to either Astoria)."
