Come tour Astoria, the United Nations of NYC.
Tour Astoria, the United Nations of NYC with a fourth generation New Yorker and Astoria resident of 20 years. Did you know that over 160 nationalities live and work in this neighborhood, full of cozy cafes and ethnic gourmet food stores – only 15 minutes from midtown Manhattan? From Argentinian steaks to Thai ginger tofu, from Czech beer to Greek coffee, and from French patisserie to Turkish baklava store, Astoria boasts its culinary delights on every block. Yet, it’s also a vibrant community of working artists and musicians. On this tour, you’ll visit an art gallery, watch Italian sausages made while-you-watch (only on the days he is making them), browse through a Turkish boutique for scarves and jewelry, peek into the Little Egypt’s hookah bars, and have an iced coffee or a drink at a posh, sophisticated café. Some sample foods are included.
