at THE WILLIAM QUINN SR. GALLERY
The Hellgate Bridge from Astoria Park
The William Quinn Sr. Gallery and Lecture Hall, home to the Greater Astoria Historical Society,
and the Vincent Seyfried Research Center are now open to the public.
On Saturdays from 12:00 to 4:00 P.M., the fourth floor gallery is open. An information cart
has material on the museums and shopping in the area. Members of the society are on hand to
answer your questions about the area. We are your
Long Island City - Astoria Community Information Center.
The 2500 square foot Gallery Space and Lecture Hall features a changing series of exhibits. Currently
on display, "Look Up, Look Down, Look Around," a series of exhibits on a broad array of topics ranging
from photographer Dave Frieder, "the Cable Guy" who climbs bridges for fun, to Diana Stuart,
"the Man-Hole Cover Lady" with her exhibit of outstanding - and endangered - manhole and coal chute covers,
to the General Slocum Centennial Exhibit, a grim portrait of New York’s worst disaster before 9/11.
Located in The Quinn Building at Broadway between 35th and 36th Streets in Long Island City, the gallery is
a great destination for neighbors, school kids, or anyone interested in local history.
For tourists visiting our growing arts community, this is your portal into the borough! Long Island City-Astoria’s excellent restaurants and range of shopping will open your eyes.
All this just steps from our front door!
Long Island City-Astoria is easily accessible by a number of subway lines. We are a few blocks from two major subway lines at (R, G, V) Steinway Street or Broadway (N, W). We are only 15 minutes from Bloomingdales!
The Society asks visitors to contribute a small donation to help defray costs of maintaining the space.
