Athens Square Park
Located in Astoria, New York's Greek-American neighborhood, this park was restored in 1990 as a locus for neighborhood gatherings and to create "a little bit of Athens in Astoria." An amphitheater juxtaposed with statues of the Greek philosopher Socrates and the Greek goddess Athena give the park a Hellenic ambience.
Rizzo’s Fine Pizza
Rizzo's is known throughout the City for its thin-crust Sicilian slice, a beautifully composed tableau with rectangles of creamy, slightly browned and crisp mozzarella floating atop a deep-red pool of tangy, garlic-infused sauce sprinkled with a heap of Parmesan and Romano, sharp and salty.
