The gateway to New York City and the food capital of the world
Scandinavian cultures celebrate the concept of hygge, which roughly translates to a feeling of coziness and enjoying life's simple pleasures. A mix of cultures, cuisines, professions and lifestyles, Astoria is the New York embodiment of the hygge experience.
Engendering an almost suburban lifestyle feel within a metropolitan context, Astoria is both relaxed and exciting at the same time. Whether it's eating street-side at The Bonnie, taking in the Socrates Sculpture Park summer outdoor cinema along the East River waterfront, or strolling through Astoria Park on a misty autumn afternoon, Astoria allows residents the ability to unwind while still having everything about New York City at their fingertips. The quintessential New York perk.
Cruise around the corner and enjoy a drink with friends at the Bohemian Hall and Beer Garden, grab fresh pastries at Artopolis, or dine on artisan pizza at Macoletta. Head south and frequent the Museum of the Moving Image and Kaufman Arts District. Or venture west to the Astoria waterfront, and experience the Welling Court Mural Project, Rainey Park, and Noguchi Museum.
