my boyfriend and i went to astoria a couple of weeks ago. i like to go there about once per year. i think it’s nice to just hang out, walk around, get good coffee, shop for antiques, and hear the ever-interesting local history. the architecture is fantastic. this time i purchased a walking map and check out some of the history of the historic homes and churches.
our hotel was rad. this was our closet area. the commodore hotel is the name of it. it’s set up sort of like the ace hotel in that, you can get a room with a shared bath. we paid extra to have our own, though.
this is the view out our hotel room window. the light is a reflection from the light in our room. i love the building that our window looked out over. i’ve been obsessed with it since the first time i ever went to astoria. does anyone know what happened to the awesome vintage clothing store that used to be out there? that was the other thing that made a huge impression.
