Did you know Astoria was named Coolest Neighborhood in NYC by Time Out New York in 2019? On this site you can find out where to go for the best restaurants, bars, bakeries, and everything else that make Astoria and LIC unique. Check out what’s going on in the area on the Happening page, and you can also join the discussion about BOAST and stay up to date by liking our Facebook page and by following us on Twitter and Instagram.
The winners of BOAST are determined from a comprehensive survey that gets sent out at the end of the year. If you’d like to get in touch or participate in the next survey, head over to the Contact page, email [email protected], or sign up for the mailing list on the homepage.
If you’re coming to Astoria from Brooklyn or Manhattan, take the N or W train uptown towards Queens, and get off at any stop between 36th Ave and Astoria-Ditmars Blvd. The 7 train goes through LIC. The address numbers have two parts separated by a dash: The first number represents the nearest cross street to the north or west, and the second part represents the distance from that street.
