Our school, BSGE, is one of the most distinctive schools in Astoria, which is in New York City in the borough of Queens.

In size, Queens is the largest of the five boroughs--Brooklyn, Bronx, Manhattan, Queens, Staten Island.

See Wikipedia article on Queens.

And, just to make things more complicated, each borough has neighborhood names that we use like a town name in addressing our mail.

Here's my school's address:

BSGE (name of school) 
34-12 36th Avenue (building number and street) 
Astoria, NY 11106 (neighborhood, state, postal code) 

The reality is, we are in New York City in the borough/county of Queens. Here's what makes it even more confusing. There is a banner hanging outside our school that the city put up claiming we are in a neighborhood called Dutch Kills. And to add further to the confusion, some people say we are in the neighborhood of Long Island City. Go figure.
