Astor Street District
  • Constructed over a period of more than 60 years, the buildings along Astor Street reflect the fashionable styles favored by their original residents. The numerous 19th-century houses, which are designed in a variety of historical revival styles, are interspersed with apartment buildings and townhouses from the 20th century, forming a unique reminder of the city's history.
