A Loss of History in Astoria, Queens

Much of the current talk about Astoria, Queens, has been around the loss of historical sites in the area. In 2014, the Steinway Mansion sold for 2.6 million dollars to private owners who promised to keep the mansion as a historical landmark. Due to current construction in the area, local residents are worried for what this means for the future of the mansion and its long history. Many hope for the mansion to turn into a museum or cultural center for future generations to use.
