Borough of Diversity: Greeks in Queens with Christina Rozeas


By the early 1900s, New York was becoming a melting pot for immigrants hailing from different nations. Though many settlers chose Manhattan as their home, others ventured forward into the borough of Queens. Astoria became home to the largest Greek community outside of Athens. Join author Christina Rozeas as she traces the immigrant journey from Greece to America and shows how the Greeks developed a thriving and much larger community than their predecessors thought possible.

Christina Rozeas is a graduate of St. John's University. A first-generation Greek American, she resides in Queens with her husband.
