Sitting on the edge of the East River and resting between the Triborough Bridge and Hell Gate Bridge, the park offers shoreline sights and views that make the benches along its perimeter a sketcher's delight
|And the views!|
Astoria Park, on the west shore of Queens, extends from south of the Triborough Bridge to north of the Hell Gate Bridge. With a panoramic view of the skyscrapers of midtown Manhattan in the south to the Hell Gate channel in the north, the scenery presents the diverse landscape of New York City.
The Park is located at 19th Street between Astoria Park South and Ditmars Blvd, in Queens.
To get there - take the Q or the N Train to Astoria Blvd - Hoyt Ave. It's the second to last stop on the Astoria Branch and you'll see it's located directly next to the car entrance to the Triborough Bridge.
