This apartment is one of three in a building for sale in Astoria for (just) less than $2 million.

Exit Realty

One of our own just made the move from Astoria to Fort Greene, but that doesn't mean the perennially popular Queens neighborhood isn't worth a look. It has charm, some big museums, green spaces, and a healthy dose of family friendliness, as well as lower prices for comparable spaces in Manhattan and Brooklyn.  

Here are five places for sale in the neighborhood that are having open houses this weekend.
