About Us

Welcome to QS Magazine online. We are very pleased to offer the community a magazine devoted to the lifestyle and trends of our neighborhood as the publisher of the Queens Gazette, Astoria and LIC’s own home-grown, 32 year old weekly newspaper, we saw an opportunity to celebrate the community and we agreed that QS Magazine was the perfect vehicle to accomplish the goal.

QS Will not be an arm of the Gazette, but rather the soul of the community in terms of nightlife, adventure, fun, and art. We are not limiting this publication in any way and invite all of our readers to actively participate in this endeavor. Thank you for reading and visiting. We look forward to your contribution, comments, and opinions. We want to embrace the new movement that is Astoria’s Queens Scene.
