Respecting the past, Building the future

An “Astoria Character” – Dominque Perrot

In case you missed it, Nancy Ruhling, who contributes the popular “Astoria Characters’ series to the Huffington Post, featured OANA’s own Dominique Perrot, a strong supporter of OANA, back in February. In this profile, Dominique discusses growing up in Astoria, the influence of the library on 14th Street where she now teaches crochet and knitting, moving to Canada and back to Astoria, and how she started to explore the history of our neighborhood. Dominque wants to share her love of Astoria with others and is working on developing a walking tour.
