"Thinking of Astoria? Do your Research!!"

Astoria WAS a good value in the early 2000s. It's a different story now. Landlords are getting greedy with rents approaching Manhattan prices! Yet, it's Astoria! The subway line to Astoria is one of the worst in the city. I don't care what anyone says, it is terrible. I use it daily for commuting and the delays are daily, not to mention the super-packed trains. This combined with the soaring rents means Manhattan is quickly becoming the better deal. The N/W trains work find in Manhattan, but often stop or delay or reroute at 57th. Very inconvenient. So tired of it. Finally, despite the constantly increasing rents, there are no good groceries here (no Trader Joe's, no Whole foods etc.) The restaurants and cafes are average. The population is diverse but noisy 24/7. As I said, it was a deal when 1 bedrooms could be had for 1G back in the early 2000s. Now with 1 bedrooms in excess of 2G there is just no point.
  • Beautiful views of the NYC skyline from some areas
  • Terrible service on N/W subway line
  • Far from Downtown Manhattan
  • Few big supermarkets though the neighborhood does have many small grocery stores and delis that sell a large variety of international foods and eats
  • Poor shopping
