Astoria Things to Do

    by Patricialuv Written May 29, 2005

    In the New York City Borough of Queens, Astoria remains a very nice area to visit. Astoria Park contains many nice areas to relax, play some sports, ride your bike or take a nice relaxing walk with the NYC skyline overlooking the triborough bridge. It's a beautiful place to visit in the Spring and Summer.
