For our Macaulay Seminar 2, The Peopling of New York City, we focused on the Greek influence in the ethnic enclave of Astoria. If one were to walk down Ditmars Boulevard, one would see thriving “cafenions” (Greek coffee shops), Greek regional organizations, Greek diners and restaurants, Greek Orthodox Churches, and most notably, a bustling community rich with Greek tradition. Our seminar was dedicated to this flourishing Greek community in Astoria, and this website is the culmination of a semester’s work as we discovered how Greek immigrants made Astoria their new home without losing traditions from their heritage.
