Collection: This recording is part of the 30th Ave - A Year in the Life of a Street Records at the Archives at Queens Library: Josh Ellis and Elanna White
Description: Josh Ellish and Elanna White discuss aspects of Astoria that they have always enjoyed. Josh mentions that Welling Court is a tight knit community and he knew all his neighbors from block parties he attended to as a kid. Elanna enjoys the feel of culture from all over the world in Astoria. Within a two block radius from her home, cuisine from various countries is available. Astoria is also very close and to other places such as Manhattan, making it;s location very convenient. Elanna's family has owned Broadway Silk Store (between 35th and 36th streets) for 90 years, giving her a very rich sense of origin and history in Astoria.
