ABOUT

BOAST: Best of Astoria is the place to get information about the great things happening in Astoria, Queens. There’s a reason 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 makes Astoria unique. Check out what’s going on in the area on the Happening page, and you can also join the discussion about the Best of Astoria and stay up to date by liking our Facebook page and by following us on Twitter and Instagram.

The winners of BOAST were determined by surveying those who know the area best — Astoria residents. If you’d like to get in touch or participate in the next survey, head over to the Contact page, 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 address numbers have two parts: The first part represents the nearest cross street to the north or west, and the second part represents the distance from that street.

Sunset at the 36th Ave station.
