An artifact of hubris remains in a 5000-year time capsule equal in distance today with the earliest civilizations of the past.

– Bob Singleton, Executive Director of the Greater Astoria Historical Society

Love the added insights Bob Singleton brought to our Queens “Here & Gone” Highlights and can’t wait to hear the true-life tales inspired by the Westinghouse Time Capsule, North Beach, Astoria Pool Sentinels, and The First Photocopy at tomorrow’s second story meeting.

See you at the show next week! Get your tickets here for 5/18.


Special thanks to Rosalie Chandler, Bob Singleton, and Ava Vitali for helping us create these Queens “Here & Gone” highlights. The Greater Astoria Historical Society is the place to learn and celebrate Long Island City and its neighborhoods. Learn more at
