Neighborhood Guide

Astoria

Astoria has long been known as a Greek neighborhood, and it’s unquestionably a great place to get dishes with calamari, feta and other Mediterranean staples. But there are communities, and culinary options, from the rest of the world, notably the Middle East, India and Brazil. Astoria’s proximity to Manhattan—it’s 20 minutes from Times Square by subway—has made it popular with young, artsy New Yorkers, who’ve opened galleries alongside longtime cultural favorites like the Museum of the Moving Image and historic Kaufman Astoria Studios, where several current TV series make their home.
