Took this Monday night while walking home along 33rd Street in Astoria from El Mariachi Mexican restaurant. I enjoy walking around Astoria. It’s probably due to the novelty of it all — I was thoroughly familiar with Park Slope after having lived there for eight years. It was beautiful but boring and there were few surprises. It may not be all brownstone beauty (actually, none of it is brownstone), but Astoria’s scatterpodge of residential architectural styles from the last hundred years at least leaves room for discovery.
