Astoria: A Once and Future Village

Janes Walk

Led By Robert Singleton, Greater Astoria Historical Society

Old Astoria Village, whose roads are older than Wall Street, trace a 17th century farm’s gardens and 19th century mansions. The area stands at the cusp of change. The first building is nearing completion from a large development project led by The Durst Organization. At the tour’s end, think about what you have seen and share your ideas with each other on how Astoria Village, Old and New, can enhance each other by working together.
