Yes, it is considered a good area to live in.

It's a normal Queens neighborhood. I don't find it to be anything special,but it is close to Manhattan.

Depends on whose life and what quality.

Why is it that Transplants view life from a singular set of values, and think all peoples share that value??

It's the 'group-think' thing, right?

I guess it's only transplants that want to live in a place that has low crime, clean streets, park space, good transportation, attractive architecture, and access to good grocery stores and restaurants.

If you're not clever enough to think up a few things that would contribute to having a nice quality of life in this city, then don't bother posting in a thread like this.

What's the nightlife like in Astoria? Is the population generally older, or younger?

Mixed bag, some are newer young professionals in certain areas, some older immigrants that have owned their houses for awhile, and in between. While there is some nightlife in certain areas, probably more around 30th ave or Broadway, I think the majority of people go into the City since its like a 20-40 minute train ride to most active areas.

Rent is okay, probably 2/3 what you would pay in Manhattan maybe less. If you work or go to school in Midtown it is pretty convenient.

I threads of this type amusing, I am sure this question has been asked within the last year, and it wouldn't have changed much.

Astoria overall is a good area for the most part, and it's been getting better over the years. Nice, diverse neighborhood with everything you need for the most part. Astoria Park with the pool is really nice. I wouldn't mind living there.

Depends. It's very mixed in terms of demographics. There are older immigrants,mainly from Europe,and their families & descendants. You also have more recent immigrants who are mainly from Latin America or Asia. Then you have the people who have recently moved to the area, transplants.
