in Astoria Arrivals, Boutiques, Shopping

Friday night I had the pleasure of meeting up with Leni from Queens Mamas to attend the grand opening of Creator’s Co-op on 23rd Avenue. I’ve long wondered when Astoria would get its very own bustling shopping area like so many other neighborhoods have (think: Austin Street in Forest Hills, Seventh Avenue in Park Slope, Broadway in SoHo) but I think one might finally be here. On what use to be a sleepy block just south of Ditmars and North of our beloved Beer Garden, a wonderful assortment of businesses have popped up.

Here’s just a taste of what was happening last Friday night on this emerging avenue in Astoria.

Creator’s Co-op opened, showcasing handmade goods and local talent:

Kids were getting warmed up for a Mommy And Me Zumba class:

The new skate shop, Belief, was open late, local kids were playing video games, and the merchandise was captivating:

Ornella Trattoria was hopping and we decided to end the evening with a bottle of Pinot Noir, a Bianca Salad, and their always amazing homemade Chestnut Pasta:

Here are the independently owned business that are making 23rd Avenue quite the amazing destination in Astoria:

Belief Skate Shop (2920 23rd Ave.) Skate shop and clothing boutique with an emphasis on great finds for men.

Fresh Start (2913 23rd Ave.) A family owned natural food store with a great prepared food/juice bar selection.

Ornella Trattoria (2917 23rd Ave.) Some of the best homemade pastas and Italian dishes in Astoria.

KrisTees (2401 23rd Ave.) A curated collection of easy to wear, stylish and modern women’s clothes, jewelry, and accessories.

Creator’s Co-op (2616 23rd Ave.) The newest addition to 23rd Avenue, this charming shop features a variety of handmade goods.

Rejuvenate Day Spa (2617 23rd Ave.) The perfect place for holistic, organic, and all natural spa treatments.
