Capibara, I think you'd be Southern Astoria - my boyfriend lives on 28th Street between 34th and 35th Streets, closer to 35th.
Thanks Mcdirk, now I can answer the poll accurately. :-)  Your boyfriend must be my neighbor! :

31st Avenue and 29th Street, which I guess puts me right on the Central/Southern border.

Near Ditmars & Steinway, intersection of the fabulous Bagel House. Woo woo!  :mrgreen:

Same here! That place is great. We made it a Saturday morning tradition.

I'm surprised so many are in the Ditmars area.  42nd and 21st Ave, here, a bit out in the boonies.

Hiya neighbor ::waves hello:: We have not tried Walima, have you??

I think the prices are little on the high side as well as the fact that when I looked at the menu there were a few typos, which for me, does not leave a good first impression. I do feel bad for them as they just have not been pulling them in but as my partner and I were discussing (he may joining the board soon ::yay::) we think it would have been better if it was a different cuisine that had gone in that location. OTOH, it is a wierd spot on the whole for a restaurant, but I am rambling on here as this is not the restaurant thread so in conclusion I wish them the best of luck! AND SCENE!!! :wink:

I'm at 31st Ave. and 34th St.

I was thinking the other day if I could live anywhere in Astoria, where would that be and I realized it was like one or two blocks over from where I am now (36th St is beautiful between Broadway and 30th). And 33rd between 31st Ave and Broadway was one of those blocks in Time Out's best blocks story.

31st Ave Rules.
