Neighborhood Profile

Astoria is a wonderfully mixed neighborhood that combines some of the best things found in New York – a proximity to Manhattan, a relatively safe, multi-cultural and multi-ethnic environment, relatively affordable rents, an abundance of dining options, and even a budding arts scene.

Its elevated "N" train line will surely remind of you of Chicago, and you can easily walk to the waterfront where the views would probably rival those of Second City (although the waterfront itself is nowhere near as developed).

Apartments & Real Estate

Compared to Manhattan and even much of Brooklyn, the rents are still more reasonable (see our rental price summary below), which explains the presence of non-financial-sector workers and even students in large numbers. However, thanks in part to a multitude of media stories about 'discovering' this neighborhood, since the early 2000s the area has been getting progressively more expensive.
