Astoria Warms Up Fourth Of July

The annual fireworks show of the Central Astoria Local Development Coalition,  co-sponsored by New York City Councilmen  Jimmy van Bremer and for the first by by newly-elected Costas Constantinides, drew the usual “oohs: and “ahs” from spectators who came from all over the City who lined up at East River’s edge in Astoria Park.

Residents fortunate enough to have balconies or root tops from which the half-hour show could be seen missed out on the first half of the program, a delightful concert by the Queens Symphony.

Constantinides, who is the first Greek or Cypriot elected to New York’s  City Council, called it “unifying event for the community and an economic boom for the neighborhood.”

Mission…to Alonnisos, a TNH Documentary

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams? TNH and our video show ‘Mission’ marked the change of the season by transporting viewers into the heart of summer.
