BEST OF ASTORIA
FAVORITE PIZZERIA MILKFLOWER: The St. The Ghost pizza—with three different cheeses and burnt honey—is the closest thing to heaven you can eat! SAC’S PLACE: Pizza is king at Sac’s Place, but their pastas are also worth a special trip. (Especially paired with wine!)
FAVORITE BOUTIQUE THE BRASS OWL: Whether you’re looking for that perfect pair of flats, an eye-catching statement necklace, or a sweet-smelling candle, The Brass Owl’s got you covered. LOCKWOOD: Favorite place to buy gifts: onesies and books for kids, jewelry, mugs, picture frames, and cookbooks. The possibilities are endless. TOCA NYC STORE: Every antique and vintage item is hand picked and curated by Justin and Monica Toca at some of the best estate homes and barns from the Hudson Valley to Connecticut to the Hamptons. They also sell large furniture, from 100-Year-Old Victorian pieces to Mid-Century Modern ones.
FAVORITE YOGA STUDIO THE YOGA ROOM: A great space for any level of Yoga practitioner. Also a great spot for beginners to start a Yoga practice.
FAVORITE GYM SIMPLY FIT: Looking for a local cycling class? Simply Fit has a great cycling studio. Motivating instructors, fun music, and good—but challenging—classes for all fitness levels.
FAVORITE HAIR SALON/STYLIST
STUDIO NOVA: Stylist Nina is a hair whisper. Both Mackenzi and Emily are fans of her work.
FAVORITE PLACE TO EXPERIENCE THE ARTS Q.E.D.: The diversity of events at QED is unparalleled, and it’s also a fun place to just pop in for a beer to see what’s happening! SOCRATES SCULPTURE PARK: When the GrowNYC Greenmarket returns in early June, check out the art and pick up fresh fruit and vegetables. Win-win.
