In the 1920s (and through the 1980s), most Astoria neighborhoods had at least one small store conveniently located for nearby residents and workers. Many of these store buildings still stand. Some continue to house businesses while others have since been converted into residences, apartments or studios. Join Rachel Jensen, LCPS's new executive director, for a presentation on the history of Astoria's neighborhood grocery stores.
