Astoria Financial Corporation is the holding company for Astoria Federal Savings and Loan Association. Established in 1888, today we have assets of $15.8 billion, with deposits in New York totaling $9.9 billion that make us the second largest thrift depository headquartered in New York – and one of the largest banks in the United States. We originate residential mortgage loans through banking and loan production offices in New York, a broker network covering four states, primarily along the East Coast, and through correspondent relationships covering 10 states and the District of Columbia. We also originate multi-family and commercial real estate loans, primarily on rent controlled and rent stabilized apartment buildings, located in New York City and the metropolitan area.
Each day our philosophy of “Putting people first” drives us to deliver great personal service and the best financial products to our customers – and the local communities we serve. We accomplish this through our convenient branch locations and multiple delivery channels, as well as this enhanced website. The markets we serve in the Brooklyn, Queens, Nassau, Suffolk and Westchester counties, have a population that exceeds that of 38 individual states. Yet, while we’ve grown to serve so many, our approach has never changed. We started out as a local, community-oriented bank that delivered exceptional service and that’s still our focus today.
