Iskandar Dives into Spring at Astoria Park Pool Festival!


Billy Chrissochos, Dorit, Angelina Alexon, Frank Pace, 
Chris Pollatos, and Themi Kyriazis.
Billy Chrissochos’ new rock group Iskandar, hit the stage at the Astoria Park pool Deck this past Saturday, May 5th 2012 to not just rock the crowd but perform for a worthy cause. As one of the largest and oldest pools in New York City, NYC Parks is celebrating Astoria Pool and Park during National Historic Preservation Month.  The Astoria Pool Olympic High Dive of the future Astoria Park Performance Center has been selected as one of 40 projects eligible for a “Partners in Preservation” grant from the National Trust for Historic Preservation and American Express.
The diving platform, built in 1936 under Robert Moses, will form the centerpiece of the new performance center to be constructed on the site of the old diving pool in Astoria Park, which has been out of use for several decades. Billy Chrissochos ecstatically commented “there is no better feeling than playing Classic Rock on historic grounds overlooking the majestic East River and our iconic Triboro and Hell Gate Bridges!”
With Council Member Peter Vallone, Jr. and support from the Astoria community, the festival offered many exciting activities for all ages.
