Even if the holidays stress you out a little (and it’s okay if they do), there’s still something pretty magical about all the twinkling lights in the winter darkness. It’s okay, you can like it. There’s also something nice about the smell of pine, and there’s definitely something nice about being in charge of how to decorate. Go minimal or go all-out, traditional or modern, pretty or silly, you can get any holiday style you want in Astoria. Here’s a roundup of places to get your cheer on.

Trees

24th Avenue (outside of Bohemian Hall)

Trees of all sizes, as well as wreaths, loose branches, and those little wooden reindeer are available outside of the Bohemian Hall beer garden walls through Christmas. Extra fun? They have a little tent with lights and Christmassy things to walk through. They take credit cards. Leave a tip, the workers are outside all day.

Steinway and 31st Ave

 

Ditmars Boulevard (outside CVS)

Like the above outdoor tree market, this one is more of the same, with trees of various sizes.

The Home Depot

There’s a tree guy on Broadway and 32nd who will deliver your tree for free (and is a lot cheaper than Greg’s Trees online prices, I think his trees are $10 per foot).
