Steinway St.

For those who know about pianos (I only learned about this quite recently) but Steinway & Sons are apparently a big brand in the piano making. They were also big on naming quite a large street in the Astoria part of Queens. Steinway Street runs till Northern Blvd (shown above) where Astoria ends and Sunnyside begins. In Queens we have tens and tens of names for every area and due to the ill-defined borders some areas have two names or overlap each other. For example, Steinway can be considered its own part in Queens but it's actually in Astoria. This can be confusing even you if you live here let alone for those who don't!
Bon weekend todos!

"Noël est là,
Ce joyeux Noël, des cadeaux plein les bras,
Qui réchauffe nos coeurs et apporte la joie,
Jour des plus beaux souvenirs,
Plus beau jour de l'année."
Washington Irving


“Christmas is there,
This Merry Christmas, gifts full arms,
Who heats our hearts and brings the joy,
Day of the most beautiful memories,
More beautiful day of the year."
Washington Irving

I am still trying to put the picture of missing UK little girl Madeleine's face into the minds of many, so, if your readers would pop over to Cheltenham to have a look i'd be grateful. You never know she could be in your road or mine by now. We can all look! Thanks. There is now a POSSIBLE, i stress possible, American connection.

Hello, I came across your blog on a search for information about Queens. I'm writing a book, it's set in Fresh Meadows and I was wondering if I had some question, if I could refer them to you?

It would help me out alot, I live in California and I want information from an actual person, not ust cold hard facts via the internet. I would be very greatful and they would not be hard questions.

Clever post and nice picture. I used to go into their stores all the time, but my air conditioning business allows me very little free time to go on such excursions to the piano store of old. Hopefully soon. Thanks for the memories.
