Following the hardships during and following COVID-19, a few of Astoria’s beloved establishments have permanently closed. Many of these locations were seen as landmarks to our community and all will definitely leave a void.

Thank you to all these local businesses for their years of excellent service. We wish the owners and staff the best of luck going forward. You will be missed.
