I miss threads like Astoria gems. [Happy Thanksgiving]


What places in Astoria would you miss the most if they closed?

I'm tempted to say Trade Fair and Walgreens, because that's where I go the most these days, but I'm going to say slate sidewalks.  It's the walking-around-ness of Astoria that I would miss, it's the real gem of Astoria.


By the way, what's this got to do with Thanksgiving, unless you're asking what in Astoria are we thankful for?

Walters Hardware, well they're closed for good as of a couple weeks now  :sad: . I don't know, maybe it's just me but seeing these Astoria landmarks close shop for good gets to me. It feels like it's not Astoria anymore because all the stores I grew up going to are closing there doors forever one by one.

It would be quite sad if the the sidewalks were closed. And this is a gem walking area.


It would be difficult for me to imagine missing Cassinelli and especially Rosario's.

I'd probably miss Michael's most if it closed down.


Where are you these days TRX?  Hope to see you online!

I would miss the 114th Precinct if it closed.
Do you like Huey Lewis and The News?

But know you always got it going on.
