Buddha


Buddha is not the most common yard sculpture in Astoria, but it's nice to come upon something different now and then. Peace and tranquility, everyone! Sounds good to me.

I wouldn't expect to find that in Astoria, either. Or in Ocala! I like, too.

Jacob -

The Chinese have played an integral part in the development of Astoria almost from the beginning. I'm not sure of the truth of it but I grew up in Astoria being told that the Chinatown section of Astoria was second only to San Francisco's Chinatown in population in the early part of the 20th century.

Recognition of the valuable contributions made by Chinese immigrants to Astoria's growth and development are finally being recognized and publicized. Check out this website - http://www.astoriachineseheritage.org/about.html
for a great deal of written and oral history about the Chinese in Astoria.
