"A quiet, yet still active avenue."

23rd Avenue is a great avenue to live on or near, because it is quiet but still presents many dining and nightlife opportunities for residents. There is a spa near the Steinway section, as well as a music rehearsal studio (Astoria Soundworks) and other local businesses. St. Irene's Greek Orthodox Church stands at the corner of 36th Street, and several eateries near 31st Street such as Telly's Taverna, Lefgos Pyrgos and Stamatis Restaurant. 23rd Avenue ends by Astoria Park.

The only stretch of 23rd that presents a difficulty is the block between 35th street and 33rd street, where the Amtrak line runs overhead. While one of the best sandwich shops in the Queens borough lies right there, Sal, Kris and Charlies, there is a chance you'll get a bird dropping on your head from all the pigeons that like to nestle in the tressels!

"busy street, lots of businesses"

Astoria Blvd N runs parallel to the Grand Central Parkway. It is a busy road and mostly commercial but surprisingly has some residential homes and town houses as well. This is a safe but not especially upscale area. The stores are not upscale boutiques and nice restaurants, but more along the lines of carry out restaurants and small utilitarian stores. Not recommended to live but you don't need to avoid the area.
