Astoria is a neighborhood in the northwestern corner of the borough of Queens in New York City. Located in Community Board 1, Astoria is bounded by the East River and is adjacent to three other Queens neighborhoods: Long Island City (bordering at Broadway), Sunnyside (bordering at Northern Boulevard), and Woodside (bordering at 50th Street).
There is some debate as to what constitutes the geographic boundaries of Astoria. Traditionally, Broadway was the southern-most limit, however many residents and businesses south of Broadway identify themselves as Astorians for convenience, since Long Island City is considered to be a strictly industrial area. The eastern section of Astoria, with Steinway Street as its main thoroughfare, is sometimes referred to as "Steinway" and considered to be a separate neighborhood.
Astoria is served by the N and W subway lines, which runs along an elevated track above 31st Street. Subway stops are located at several east-west avenues, with the terminus at Ditmars Boulevard, which extends roughly eastward from Astoria Park to the Marine Air Terminal at LaGuardia Airport. The next major avenue south of Ditmars with a subway stop is Astoria Boulevard, which flanks the Grand Central Parkway and the Triborough Bridge. Below that is the 30th Avenue stop, then Broadway.
Farthest south is 36th Avenue, a minor commercial strip which is a prominent Bengali area with traditional restaurants and shops. The primary streets running north-south are Vernon Boulevard along the East River; 21st Street, a major traffic artery with a mix of residential, commercial and industrial areas; 31st Street; and Steinway Street (named for Heinrich Engelhard Steinweg, founder of the Steinway & Sons piano factory), a major commercial street with many retail stores, and a very prominent Middle Eastern section between Astoria Boulevard and 28th Avenue.
Attractions in Astoria include the Kaufman Astoria Studios' Museum of the Moving Image, Isamu Noguchi Museum, and Socrates Sculpture Park. Astoria Park, along the East River, is Astoria's largest park and contains the Astoria Pool—the jewel of New York City's public pools and former site of the U.S. Olympic trials.
