Who's everyone? Most people on here don't even like Queens.

It's better than the Bronx, SI, and more convenient than most of Brooklyn. What's not not to like about Astoria? You just have to embrace the ugly architecture.

That's probably my main gripe with Astoria...it has zero architectural value...it's just a bunch of ugly, frame/siding boxes with no craftsmanship or historical value. I dunno why that is....but if that's the biggest problem, I would say the place is great!

Most of Astoria is brick.

I like BZ grill. That's for sure. I think I'd live there just to have easy access to their pork gyros.

I only use Queens for the Airports, its the only way I can leave the city. Also Queens has the best looking women, they give great fellatio.

I wouldn't call Astoria the liveliest neighborhood in the city, but its certainly not dead around Ditmars, Stienway, 30th and Broadway. But to each their own, I guess. Though, I hope you're not one of those who think stroller wonderland neighborhoods, like Park Slope, are lively and exciting.

Except he is, only parts of the Northern Bronx are nice, while only Corona and south east Queens are bad.

Sounds good to me! I don't take any of that as an insult. I just wish the rest of the country didn't lump us in with the un-American ideas of city.
