It is said that the Internet is making the world a smaller place, connecting people and places that were once hugely separated by many miles and mindsets. However, the world has been getting “smaller” for years — in large part due to immigration and the free flow of ideas that come with it.

Now on view at the Conference House Park visitor center and at the Biddle House in Conference House Park, this exhibit highlights narratives of important pioneers in the fields of maritime navigation and communication so people today can understand how our ancestors started making the world “smaller” slowly but surely over centuries by learning how to travel vast oceans. The exhibit also includes a selection of devices, navigational maps and prints from the Museum of Maritime Navigation and Communication (located in Rosebank, S.I.), devoted to preserving and displaying devices and equipment that were used over the years to navigate waters worldwide. This exhibit also includes a working model of a dry dock.

On Saturday, September 22, Astoria Park Alliance will bring its signature Shore Fest event back to Astoria Park. The event festivities will take place on the Main Lawn adjacent to the Bocce Court off Shore Boulevard with local sponsorship from Ridgewood Savings Bank.

The event has intentionally been scheduled for mid-September to take advantage of comfortable weather that late summer brings.

Live music will be performed on a main stage procured by The Alliance with a rotating set of local musicians from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., including The Fogo Azul Drumline, East River Blues Band, and more!

Shore Fest promises to bring fun for all ages with classic competitions like a watermelon eating contest, potato sack races, egg on a spoon and bean bag toss. Local Astoria retailers have donated generous gift prizes for Shore Fest participants.

Shore Fest will also be a place to learn a new skill or hobby like bocce, yoga, zumba, bird watching, and even improv acting.

A Donut eating contest for all ages will be supported by new Astoria donut shop Sugar & Water. Kids will be encouraged to get their faces painted and enjoy assorted arts and crafts activities on the main lawn.

Astoria Park Alliance is celebrating its eleventh-year anniversary, and 2018 marks the organization's first full year as an official 501(c)(3) non-profit. APA welcomes the community to celebrate these achievements while connecting with other Astorians in enjoying the park’s beauty. Shore Fest is a free and fun festival that promises to close out the summer in style.

Attendees are encouraged to RSVP on Facebook and check social media for programming updates. In case of inclement weather, Shore Fest will proceed the following day.

Fishing in New York City? You bet! We provide the rods, reels, bait, and instruction for participants to drop in a line and relax, or engage with environmental educators on such topics such as water quality, fish biology, and more.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I fish for more than 30 minutes?

In order to accommodate the growing demand for this program, we have limited each participant to a 30 minute session. We believe that this is a meaningful and productive time allowance to fish that will enable even more New Yorkers to connect with the Hudson River!

Why can’t my organized group come to Big City Fishing?

Big City Fishing is open to the public and therefore we cannot accommodate large groups fishing. If you are a leader of an organized group, we invite you to participate in one of the many scheduled educational programs throughout the park. Learn more about our summer camp programs here.

Can I sign up in advance for a 30 time slot?

Sign-ups cannot be made in advance for Big City Fishing. After the program begins, you can speak to one of our Park Educators to sign up for a fishing pole.

Will I catch a fish?

We hope so! Fishing is a sport that takes a lot of patience and sometimes luck. If you don’t catch a fish we encourage you to come back and try again at another program!

I’m on the Pier but can’t find Big City Fishing, where is it?

Look for our large blue tent. Park Educators will be set up along the railing with a large “Big City Fishing” sign on the tent and a row of fishing poles.

What happens if it rains?

We want your Big City Fishing experience to be enjoyable and safe therefore inclement weather can sometimes create the need to cancel Big City Fishing. If we do cancel Big City Fishing, we will post it both on our Facebook and Twitter pages.

What lives in the Hudson River?

Hudson River Park includes 400 acres of an estuarine sanctuary, protected waters in our Park! There are over 70 species of fish that call the Hudson River home, including striped bass, American eels, and lined seahorses! You can learn more about our ecosystem here.

What time should I arrive to sign up for a fishing pole?

Due to high demand, we cannot guarantee a time slot for Big City Fishing. It is difficult to tell exactly how busy each program will be, but we recommend signing up for a fishing pole during the first half of the program to increase your chances of participation.

It is said that the Internet is making the world a smaller place, connecting people and places that were once hugely separated by many miles and mindsets. However, the world has been getting “smaller” for years — in large part due to immigration and the free flow of ideas that come with it.

Now on view at the Conference House Park visitor center and at the Biddle House in Conference House Park, this exhibit highlights narratives of important pioneers in the fields of maritime navigation and communication so people today can understand how our ancestors started making the world “smaller” slowly but surely over centuries by learning how to travel vast oceans. The exhibit also includes a selection of devices, navigational maps and prints from the Museum of Maritime Navigation and Communication (located in Rosebank, S.I.), devoted to preserving and displaying devices and equipment that were used over the years to navigate waters worldwide. This exhibit also includes a working model of a dry dock.

Fishing in New York City? You bet! We provide the rods, reels, bait, and instruction for participants to drop in a line and relax, or engage with environmental educators on such topics such as water quality, fish biology, and more.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I fish for more than 30 minutes?

In order to accommodate the growing demand for this program, we have limited each participant to a 30 minute session. We believe that this is a meaningful and productive time allowance to fish that will enable even more New Yorkers to connect with the Hudson River!

Why can’t my organized group come to Big City Fishing?

Big City Fishing is open to the public and therefore we cannot accommodate large groups fishing. If you are a leader of an organized group, we invite you to participate in one of the many scheduled educational programs throughout the park. Learn more about our summer camp programs here.

Can I sign up in advance for a 30 time slot?

Sign-ups cannot be made in advance for Big City Fishing. After the program begins, you can speak to one of our Park Educators to sign up for a fishing pole.

Will I catch a fish?

We hope so! Fishing is a sport that takes a lot of patience and sometimes luck. If you don’t catch a fish we encourage you to come back and try again at another program!

I’m on the Pier but can’t find Big City Fishing, where is it?

Look for our large blue tent. Park Educators will be set up along the railing with a large “Big City Fishing” sign on the tent and a row of fishing poles.

What happens if it rains?

We want your Big City Fishing experience to be enjoyable and safe therefore inclement weather can sometimes create the need to cancel Big City Fishing. If we do cancel Big City Fishing, we will post it both on our Facebook and Twitter pages.

What lives in the Hudson River?

Hudson River Park includes 400 acres of an estuarine sanctuary, protected waters in our Park! There are over 70 species of fish that call the Hudson River home, including striped bass, American eels, and lined seahorses! You can learn more about our ecosystem here.

What time should I arrive to sign up for a fishing pole?

Due to high demand, we cannot guarantee a time slot for Big City Fishing. It is difficult to tell exactly how busy each program will be, but we recommend signing up for a fishing pole during the first half of the program to increase your chances of participation.
