Archaeology is the study of human activity in the past, primarily through the discovery of artifacts and architecture that has
been left behind. Astoria's archaeology is evident through it's varied history. The neighborhood has been a popular summer
resort, a bustling manufacturing hub, as well as one of the cradles of the American film industry. Today, remnants of Astoria's
heritage are everywhere. At various times gritty, raw and beautiful, these relics help give this unique neighborhood its authenticity
and sense of place.
