Meanings and history of the name Astoria: | Edit

Astoria is a neighborhood in Queens, New York best known for its large Greek population and for being the Hollywood of the East in the early 20th century, before the warmer temperatures of Los Angeles lured movie production away.

Astoria, Queens was named for millionaire John Jacob Astor as part of a business deal. Astor was from Germany and his surname meant "goshawk," probably from a nickname given to a hawklike ancestor.
