A short walk from the Astoria Ferry, this is a few blocks where seemingly every available wall has a mural. Some are fun, some are serious, many are intricate, most are thought provoking and worth a pause.

I have to admit that NYC has so many treasures, so many neighbourhoods to visit, so much else to do it would be hard to justify the journey to Astoria just for these murals if you had only a day or two in the city. However if you've been to New York a few times and have already visited the major sites then the combination of ferry from Wall Street, with its views of Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens and a stroll to see these murals and the Socrates Sculpture Park makes for a nice morning.

Lots of art spread all over the place, hiwevr, I have seen better collections in other parts of the City. In these cold days, it is easy to drive the streets of these wallls and stop the car to take pictures.

Love looking at this stuff. Nice that alternative art is accepted and you realize that there is another world. I do not believe that I would go out of my way to come here however fun to see

Just off 30th Avenue below 12th street is a collection of graffiti murals that reflect real artistic intent. So popular has this mural become that every time I am here, I marvel at the new artwork that regularly pops up and changes frequently. My visits normally are with local groups esp the Greater Astoria Historical Society that includes it on any old Astoria event.
