Astoria Kids Neightbohood Guide
Astoria is like its own little city in the northwestern section of Queens. No need to travel to Manhattan, everything a family needs is right here. Highlights include the 60-acre, amenity-filled Astora Park featuring NYC's largest public pool and dramatic views of the RFK and Hell Gate Bridges; the Museum of the Moving Image, which has hands-on workshops for children and lots of family screenings; the original Kids Playhouse, an inexpensive indoor romping spot; and countless kid-friendly restaurants, many Greek though not all. The neighborhood is becoming more diverse every day thanks to its relatively affordable housing and all these great attractions.
