If Queens is the borough of the world, Astoria is its Mediterranean outpost, on 30th Avenue, where it is easier to order souvlakia on pita than a slice of pizza, and olive oil seems to exist as common currency, you will find United Brothers Fruit Market, the supply store for this enclave along the East River, the New York Time reports.
