Last year NYC Ferry began its new route to Astoria. This neighborhood was first settled via a ferry from Manhattan that began in the 1830s but was terminated after the opening of the Triboro Bridge. We will begin our walk at the ferry landing (3-10 Astoria Blvd.) A ferry arrives from Wall St (Pier 11) and three intermediate stops at 6PM. Fare is $2.75. (See https://www.ferry.nyc/routes-and-schedules/route/astoria/). Participants can arrive on this ferry (with me) or get to the landing on their own. The walk will include art at Socrates Sculpture Park and Welling Court murals, antebellum residences in Old Astoria, churches and Astoria Park. The walk will end at Bohemian Hall, the century old Czech beer garden for optional drinks and dinner. $20 fee collected at the start of the walk. You must register in advance (email jaconet@aol.com) which I will confirm, hold you on a waiting list, or advise of a sellout.
