I really liked the tour. Even though I live in the area, Susan showed us a lot of new great places that I have never been to. The food was delicious! Highly recommended!
As you explore the restaurants, cafes and food shops of Queens, this tour is a real international feast of 4 continents- a tribute to Astoria’s diversity. Tastings will include Middle Eastern Pastry, Gelato (in season), Spanakopita (spinach pie), Colombian sweet bread, olives, feta (at least 2 varieties) and award-winning pizza, along with Brazilian, Chilean and Asian specialties.
In addtion to the food you will:
•Learn the history of this neighborhood that has been home to Italians, Greeks, Germans, Czechs, Southeast Asians, Middle Easterners, South Americans, Asians among others
•Stand on a Revolutiionary War site
•Learn about the Steinway piano factory and “Company Town”
•Hear about Astoria’s role in the film industry-past and present
•Walk through NYC’s “largest department store”
•Visit a Hookah Cafe
•Learn fun facts about the residents, the neighborhood and more
The tour ends at the entrance of Bohemian Hall- where you may choose to raise a glass in N.Y.’s surviving beer garden.
This is an outdoor walking tour. Please dress for the weather and wear comfortable walking shoes.
