"Great NYC experience"

30th Avenue is a long street in Astoria, NYC. In the last years, this Queens northwest neighborhood has risen sharply. The first time I was there, I remember that I was pleased by this lively street. I was heading from the subway station to a friend place and, instead, I found myself sitting at the Athens Café for a coffee. It was so attractive that I could not resist it. I did not know, at that time, that this is a very popular place in Astoria. From there you can have a great view of the street life, and you can enjoy a slow-paced service. A friend of mine lives just around the corner, and she likes this area. Astoria offers bigger houses and better prices than Manhattan. It is definitely a place to consider if moving to NYC.

"Great place to hang out"

30th Avenue has TONS of great restaurants and shopping. I lived off of 30th Avenue of quite some time and still miss the great food. There’s a wonderful Thai place around 36th Street and a couple of great brunch spots. There’s even an independently owned music shop that gives guitar lessons and the employees are very nice. 30th Ave really has everything you need.
