Here’s a blog entry that we recently posted on Why Leave Astoria, a great local site that’s essential reading if you want to know what to do, where to go and what’s going on in Astoria and Long Island City.
Several weeks ago WLA member Steve Moskowitz contacted BQT with a great idea for a t-shirt. We loved it, and since 1/2 of BQT headquarters is located in Astoria, we were especially happy to bring his idea to life.
We reached out to one of our designers, Jim Haines, a former Astoria resident who now lives in Queens Village, and asked him to help us pay homage to his former stomping grounds. The result is our latest BQT and our second Astoria-specific shirt, the other being the Hell Gate shirt photographed by Ted Alexandro, one of the nation’s top stand-up comics and fellow Astorian.
Thanks to Steve and Jim for making this shirt happen and thank you, Astoria, for always being awesome!
You can find the shirt at BQT Shirts and at the Astoria Market this Sunday.
