Facebook: Astoria NY—Past and Present.

Celebrate our community with images past … and present! Share your own memories!

MONDAY, November 6, 2017 @ 7 PM

Lately there seems to be a social media group in Astoria for all sorts of interests – pet owners and parents, or lovers of pasta and pilsner – everyone has a place online catering to their whims.

One of the fastest growing social media sites in the community is “Astoria NY – Past and Present”

In the words of Group Administrator, Brenda Balin: “This is a Facebook group dedicated to all things Astoria-centric, ranging from history to current events.

“We feature photos and videos from all periods of time which are provided by members and sourced from both public and personal archives. Our group is public — to encourage browsing and sharing!”

Spend an evening of images from “Astoria NY – Past and Present” With GAHS Executive Director Bob Singleton – with special guest, founder Brenda Balin!

Fee: $5 (Free GAHS members)

This program is supported by the membership of the Greater Astoria Historical Society and residents of the surrounding communities of Long Island City.
