Historic Astor Court Neighborhood
September 19, 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The Astor Court neighborhood is one of the oldest on Astoria’s South Slope. The extension of the electric streetcar into the neighborhood in 1915 sparked the development of the residential district along with a public school and two grocery stores. The Astor Court name can still be found on one of the grocery stores and a mid-century apartment building. We’ll take a walk up into the neighborhood to view the charming early 20th blend of Craftsman, Colonial and Tudor Revival residential styles as well as a landmark mid-century-modern church.
The tour is mostly level hard surface but there are some off-road pathways that are steep in spots. Wear good walking shoes. The tour takes about 2 hours.
Suggested donation of $10.
