No Fear Here: Slush Astoria Is A Refreshing New Addition To The Neighborhood
By Loulou Chryssides
Another new establishment embodying the motto of ‘Astoria Strong’: Slush Astoria, located at 36-05 30thAvenue. Owners Eric & Olga Schneidemann, a lifelong Queens resident, decided to realize their dream of opening a storefront to create one of Olga’s favorite summer treats growing up: slushies.
Slush Astoria has fast become a neighborhood favorite, creating freshly handcrafted slushie drinks catered towards the whole family. Customers have the option of creating their own slushie or choosing one from Slush Astoria’s wide-ranging menu. Drinks can be made with alcohol as well, but must be accompanied by a food order.
The concept behind Slush Astoria was to always please each and every customer that comes by. The Schneidemanns aim to create a satisfying experience through their freshly crafted beverages for customers to relax and enjoy the warmer days with a refreshing slushie. “Astoria has been great. The people are very friendly and the experience has been wonderful. Even though it’s a difficult time, everyone is doing their best and [the community] puts you at ease”, said Olga Schneidemann.
